Dancing At Lughnasa by Brian Friel
Directed by Mason Price
This extraordinary play is the story of five unmarried sisters eking out their lives in a small village in Ireland in 1936.
The sisters bring up the fatherless son of one of them. They are later joined by their brother and the boy's father. Then something happens that threatens to disrupt this system beyond repair.
Widely regarded as Brian Friel's masterpiece, this haunting play is Friel's tribute to the spirit and the valour of the past.
The play was originally presented at the Abbey Theatre in Dublin in 1990. It transferred to London's National Theatre in 1991, winning the Olivier Award for Best Play, and subsequently to Broadway's Plymouth Theatre where it won the Tony Award for Best Play as well as a Drama Desk Award nomination for Outstanding Play.
