Set in Ireland’s County Donegal, 1936, this poignant memory play opens in the late summer at a family cottage, when love seems briefly possible for three sisters. Considered by many to be Irish dramatist Brian Friel’s masterwork, this piece garnered awards for best play at the Olivier Awards, the Tony Awards, and the NY Drama Critics Circle!  Dancing at Lughnasa resonates with melancholy, frustration, romantic longing, and repressed urges. It is a beautifully crafted drama which has moved audiences throughout the world.
