EisnerAmper Ireland was delighted to sponsor the opening night of ‘The United States vs Ulysses’, a play by Colin Murphy, at the Pavilion Theatre, Dún Laoghaire on Thursday, 9 November. ‘The United States vs Ulysses’ is a bawdy courtroom drama that brings to life the true story of the New York trial that liberated James Joyce’s Ulysses from censorship in the United States and made Joyce a household name. Ulysses had been banned on first publication in the United States, and for ten years the only copies available were contraband or bootlegs. That was until a hungry young publisher and an ambitious lawyer teamed up in support of Ulysses.
An informative and insightful post-show panel discussion on free speech with Senator Michael McDowell, former Minister for Justice and former Attorney General, and Joseph Hassett, author of ‘The Ulysses Trials’, was chaired by Frank McNally, Irish Times Journalist and chief writer of An Irish Diary.
We were delighted to welcome so many friends of the Firm to this brilliant production and to sponsor its opening night, reaffirming our commitment to supporting the arts and our communities.
Many thanks to the cast, the post-show panel, the team at the Pavilion, to Maura O’Keeffe and her team at Once Off Productions, and to Colin Murphy for making it such a memorable evening.
