To celebrate Bloomsday, award-winning actress Eunice Wong will read one of the greatest monologues in the English language, Molly Bloom’s moving river of sensual late-night musings that conclude James Joyce’s masterpiece Ulysses.

“Penelope [Molly] is the clou of the book,” mused Joyce. “The first sentence contains 2500 words. There are eight sentences in the episode. It begins and ends with the female word yes. It turns like the huge earth ball slowly surely and evenly, round and round spinning, its 4 cardinal points being the female breasts, arse, womb and cunt expressed by the words because, bottom (in all uses bottom button, bottom of the class, bottom of the sea, bottom of his heart), woman, yes.”
Eunice Wong trained at Juilliard, received the 2006 Helen Hayes Award for Lead Actress (The Intelligent Design of Jenny Chow, Studio Theater), and was nominated for the 2007 Barrymore Award for Lead Actress (An Infinite Ache, Walnut Street Theatre). Also Faust (Classic Stage Company/ Target Margin); Antigone and The House of Bernarda Alba (NAATCO); Top Girls (Guthrie Theater); Iphigeneia at Aulis (Yale Rep); Atlantic Theater Company; Cincinnati Playhouse; Virginia Stage; Berkshire Theater Festival; and others. Film/TV includes Law and Order, Sex and the City, Strangers with Candy, Deadline, The Job, and My Sassy Girl
