Friends of the James Joyce Tower and the James Joyce Centre present “Of Thyme and Rosemary: A Conversation Between James Joyce and Marcel Proust. A One-Act Play by Debbie Wiess.”
On May 18th, 1922, James Joyce and Marcel Proust had the occasion to meet at a private dinner party at the Hôtel Majestic in Paris celebrating the premiere of Igor Stravinsky’s new burlesque ballet Le Renard (The Fox) by Les Ballets Russes. They were two of the five special guests that night, the other three being fellow icons of Modernism: Stravinsky, Sergei Diaghilev, and Pablo Picasso. This play depicts their second meeting, in which the authors are at last able to have a true meeting of minds over some white wine.
