O'Dea first performed the role almost a decade ago as part of Dublin's Bloomsday Festival at the James Joyce Center. She subsequently performed the piece at the Mansion house Dublin by special invite of Dublin's Lord Mayor and throughout Europe.
The performance is set in Dublin's Eccles Street in 1904 around midnight. Molly ruminates on life, love, loss and sex as she awaits the return of her wandering husband, Leopold Bloom. She reminisces on her childhood years in Gibralter, the loss of her son, her adulterous relationship with Boylan, her complex relationship with her husband "Poldy" and how he kissed her under the moorish wall. Original direction of the performance was by Liam Carney and Patrick J Byrnes.
