Folio presents The Wild Geese Players of Seattle as they join Bloomsday celebrations across the globe honoring Ulysses'​ author James Joyce. Bloomsday (Bloom’s day, named for Ulysses’ main character, Leopold Bloom) refers to the 24-hour period on June 16, 1904 in which Ulysses is set. Ulysses follows the wanderings of Bloom, a Jewish everyman, and Stephen Dedalus, a young writer and Joyce's alter ego, as they wander the streets of Dublin. This year’s reading features Chapter 7 “Aeolus” and Chapter 8 “Lestrygonians.”

Since 1998, The Wild Geese Players of Seattle have presented staged readings of Irish literature, by writers such as James Joyce and W.B. Yeats. The Geese are a diverse group of people who are Irish-born or have Irish connections, who share an interest in Irish literature. They believe that poetry and certain novels are best read aloud, that some works are better heard than read.
