Austin Playhouse is proud to present the Texas Premiere of Bloomsday by one of Austin’s most acclaimed playwrights, Steven Dietz. In this literature-laden love story, an American man searches for the Irish woman who first captured his heart 30 years earlier while leading a “Bloomsday” walking tour in Dublin. As they stroll backwards through time, the couple rediscover their younger selves, relive their unlikely yet inevitable first encounter, and reminisce on what might have been. Told with humor and compassion, this bittersweet play is a moving appeal to make the most of the present before it’s past.
Well-known to the Austin and American theatre landscape, Steven Dietz's thirty-plus plays have been seen at over one hundred regional theatres in the United States, as well as Off-Broadway and internationally. Local audiences will recognize him from his plays Mad Beat Hip & Gone, Fiction, and Becky’s New Car, and Still Life with Iris. Dietz is a two-time winner of the Kennedy Center Fund for New American Plays Award, as well as a three-time finalist for the Steinberg New Play Award, receiving a special citation for Bloomsday.
