DANCING AT LUGHNASA, by Brian Friel. Directed by Mary Job.
Winner of Tony, Olivier and Drama Circle Critics’ awards for best play,
DANCING AT LUGHNASA is the memory of 7 year old Michael Evans, told from the perspective of the adult Michael, about his mother and four aunts in the late summer of 1936 when three remarkable events occurred: his uncle Jack, a missionary priest, returned home after 25 years, he met his father, and, wonders of wonders, the Mundy sisters got a wireless radio! The adult Michael watches as his mother and aunts' search for and find the potential for love--only to lose it as the hardships of life and the limitations of small village mores contain them. A “ravishing memory play” that “carries its characters and audience aloft” The New York Times
