EXILES by James Joyce


The only play by Joyce in existence.

The play follows four players and two couples, Richard Rowan, a writer and his “common-law wife” Bertha, and Robert Hand with his cousin and previous lover Beatrice, both old friends of the previous couple.

The plot is deceptively simple: Richard, a writer, returns to Ireland from Rome with Bertha, the mother of his illegitimate son, Archie. While there, he meets his former lover and correspondent Beatrice Justice and former drinking partner and now successful journalist Robert Hand. Robert was also Beatrice’s lover, and here the complications begin.
