June 16th 1904. A storm is brewing for Leopold Bloom: visitations from the future, ghosts from the past and an irresistible urge to escape the story that’s been written for him. Leaping straight into Europe’s faultlines, he begins his odyssey through the 20th century in search of his true heritage. bloominauschwitz asks vital questions of identity, belonging and memory. Deftly combining exuberant comedy with searing drama, it is both an elegy for those lost to grief and conflict, and a defiant celebration of the human capacity to imagine different futures.
Patrick Morris’s unforgettable solo performance is just one of the outstanding features of this production, directed by Rachel Aspinwall, and presented by award-winning Menagerie Theatre Company. Bloominauschwitz comes to Manchester Jewish Museum from its inspiring run at the Edinburgh Fringe 2018.
The performance will last 1hr 30mins and will be followed by an interval and Q&A with the director and actor.
