BLOOMSDAY AT THE BOTTOM OF THE WORLD
June 16 (7.30-10.30pm)
Thirsty Dog Tavern

The first ever Māori Stephen Dedalus will be appearing in this year's Bloomsday celebrations in New Zealand. George Henare, from the tribes of Ngati Porou and Ngati Hine, is one of the most distinguished actors in the country. He has performed in film and television, but he is best known for his stage work.

He's in for a busy night. Not only is he playing Stephen Dedalus but he is also doubling up -- trebling, in fact -- as Gerty MacDowell and Bella Cohen.
