June 16, 1904, might not be a date you recall as historically significant. But it’s come to be called “Bloomsday,” thanks to a rich, symbolic work of fiction by James Joyce that follows an average Joe through Dublin for a nondescript day. Joyce applied a mock-heroic framework to Ulysses, following the adventures of Homer’s great hero from The Odyssey.

Bloomsday is happening at UC’s College-Conservatory of Music this weekend in a dramatic adaptation of Joyce’s novel. The script is by Alison Vodnoy Wolf, a CCM drama grad, who says, “Although Joyce’s text is highly intellectual, what lies underneath those layers is profoundly human and universal.” Veteran CCM drama professor Michael Burnham is the director. Through Saturday. Admission to the Cohen Family Studio Theater is free, but you need to call in advance to reserve seats. Box office: 513-556-4183.
