Exiles

By James Joyce

Paperback £9.99£7.99

James Joyce's startlingly modern portrait of a marriage.

Back in Dublin after nine years abroad, Richard and Bertha have to confront two other people who love them, and ask themselves questions about guilt and responsibility. Will infidelity hold them together?

Exiles is based in part on Joyce's own relationship with Nora Barnacle. His only play, it was written in 1914 during his own self-imposed exile from Ireland, between A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man and Ulysses.

Press Quotes

'A neglected landmark of modern theatre that explores the byzantine complexities of marriage with the honesty of genius'

Guardian

'Never for a second does it lose its grip'

Independent

'Astonishing... a play that asks sharp, searching questions about the difficulty of emotional honesty and, above all, the sheer complexity of our sexual feelings'
