The melancholic-sounding ‘The Dead 1904’ is less about death and more about the meaning of life, love, and legacy. The invigorating show, based on James Joyce’s short story ‘The Dead’, is an immersive drama where the guests are a part of the show. Limited to an audience of 42 guests, the drama plays out in a historic townhouse and the actors are dressed for a party in 1904 in Dublin. The audience gets to follow the actors around the house, watch them converse, feel their emotions, enjoy them sing and dance and partake in a sumptuous meal. The holidays are the best time to experiment with something new and The Dead 1904 gives you an opportunity to do that.

The Dead 1904: Broadway Story

It’s a wintry night in Dublin, and the Morkan House is busy receiving guests for the annual ‘Feast of the Epiphany’ party held on January 6th, 1904. The residents of the house, the duo of elderly sisters, Kate and Julia Morkan, invited a motley group of guests to their home. Among the guests are their nephew and his wife, Gabriel and Gretta Conroy, and of course the 42 guests of the show. It’s the turn of the century, and Ireland is just about coping with the aftermath of the Great Famine and the immigration of the Irish to other lands.

The guests ponder and discuss those who are gone, and wonder what it means to be Irish. But all is not sad as there’s singing, dancing, dining and every guest seems to enjoy the party. The night takes a turn when Gretta hears ‘The Lass of Aughrim’ and confesses a secret to Gabriel. Buy a ticket to The Dead 1904 and hear her secret and how it changes Gabriel forever!

- Metro

“Offering a walk down a shadowed memory lane wrapped in the brightness of a holiday celebration, “The Dead, 1904” makes for a truly unforgettable experience.”
