Winner! Samuel French Off Off Broadway Short Play Festival
James Joyce and one of his most famous characters, Molly Bloom, meet in her boudoir. Joyce has come to plead his case; he wants to use Molly as a character in Ulysses and he needs her cooperation. She refuses, then agrees for ten percent of his royalties. As the play ends, she is dictating the stream of consciousness monologue that ends Ulysses. Published in Off-Off Broadway Festival Plays, 10th Series.
Molly and James was first produced in April, 1985 by
the Quaigh Lunch-Time Series.
