This should be a dinner party to remember.
— The New York Times

THE DEAD, 1904 will return this fall for a second run of 51 performances, from November 18th through January 7th. 

If you were among the 2000 theatergoers who experienced THE DEAD, 1904 last winter, you know what a unique and unforgettable experience it was to attend a holiday party with the Morkan sisters and their guests in 1904 Dublin, sharing food, drink, dance and song (and long-buried marital confessions!)

Performances will begin on November 18th and continue through the holiday season until January 7th, 2018. This immersive theater event will once again take place in the beautiful c.1900 mansion of the American Irish Historical Society on Fifth Avenue at 80th Street in New York City.

Given that fact that last year’s entire run was sold out before opening night we hope that you will take early advantage of the opportunity to visit our box office when it opens for ticket sales on Monday, September 26th at noon, and secure your tickets.




There will be only 51 performances of THE DEAD, 1904, and the audience is strictly limited to 57 per performance. This means that fewer than 3000 people will have the chance to come with us to 1904 Dublin and experience the magic of Joyce's beloved story.


Ticket options are as follows:

38 General Admission tickets including our seated Edwardian dinner, interpreted by Great Performances from the meal described in James Joyce's "The Dead", all wine and spirits ($300)

4 Premium tickets which will seat audience members with the actors

during the dinner scene for a once in a lifetime theatrical experience, meal and all wine and spirits included ($750 during Previews/$1000 during regular performances)

15 "Show Only" seats which will not include the seated dinner. Wine and spirits are served to audience members in "Show Only" seats. ($150)

Last year, we were overwhelmed by the response from audience members, many of whom told us that THE DEAD, 1904 was one of the greatest theatrical experiences of their lives. We look forward to bringing the power of this very special immersive (and tasty!) theater event to new and returning audience members this winter.


We look forward to welcoming you to the Morkans' annual holiday feast!
