About the Show

It is one of the world’s great romances. Himself: an internationally acclaimed author, whose words awakened the world. Nora: the chambermaid, whose passion and acerbic wit ignited the genius of James Joyce.

Ripped from pages of their intimate life together and inspired by their Irish roots, Himself and Nora is “the lively, sometimes lusty, spin through the love life, troubles and literary times of the great Irish writer” (NY Times). Starring Matt Bogart (Jersey Boys, Miss Saigon) as James Joyce andWhitney Bashor (The Bridges of Madison County) as Nora, this untold story, written by Jonathan Brielle and directed by Michael Bush, is a scintillating expose that opens a window into an unconventional and passionate love affair which changed literature forever.
