DANCING AT LUGHNASA


BY BRIAN FRIEL

Following the success of Lovers (2015) and The Factory Girls (2016) we are continuing our tradition of producing top quality drama, this time giving Brian Friel masterpiece’s Dancing at Lughnasa the winning Everyman touch.

Winner of an Olivier Award and a Tony Award, Dancing at Lughnasa is one of the greatest and most loved Irish plays of recent times.

Set in County Donegal in 1936 during the Celtic harvest festival of Lughnasa, the play tells the story of the five Mundy sisters and their brother Jack, who has returned home from the missions after 25 years away.

The story is told by the sisters’ nephew, Michael, who recalls the summer spent with his aunts when he was seven years old. As August gives way to September, Michael recounts his memory of childhood in Ballybeg, where his aunts raised him in their crumbling, rural home and where once they danced. A wild, raucous dance. The dream-wild dance of their memories. A dance to the exciting, fleeting melody of the past and a dance against the harsh, progressive beat of the present.

This eagerly anticipated new production of Brian Friel’s masterpiece from the Everyman team is not to be missed!
