Following the success of their award winning show 'Songs of Joyce', Darina Gallagher and Sinead Murphy have created a new Joycean musical, Misses Liffey. Through words and music, Anna Livia Plurabelle brings us on a riverrun journey through the city of Dublin introducing us to many of James Joyce’s women characters that live, work, sing and laugh along her banks. We hear from Nuvoletta and the Washerwomen from Finnegans Wake, the Morkan Sisters and Eveline from Dubliners and the Siren barmaids, Dilly Dedalus and the seaside girls in Ulysses. Anna finally bids us farewell as she meets her cold, mad father - the sea, only to fin again, begin again…

 Darina and Sinead are best known for their award-winning show ‘Songs of Joyce’

 - a musical extravaganza with songs drawn from the life and works of James Joyce. Since 2010, they have created a number of musical performances based on Joyce’s major works – Ulysses, Dubliners, Finnegans Wake and Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man, and toured internationally to critical acclaim including Boston, New York, Budapest, Prague, Trieste, San Sebastian and Moscow
