Dancing at Lughnasa by Brian Friel
Directed by Randall Bame, Instructor in Theatre and Baldwin Auditorium Manager
Performances: Feb. 22-24 at 7:30 p.m. and Feb. 25 at 2 p.m.
Set in 1936 rural Ireland, this poignant play follows five unmarried sisters trying to make ends meet. Set during the festival of Lughnasa, an ancient Celtic harvest celebration, the family’s struggles are interrupted by brief, colorful bursts of music from the radio, their only link to the larger world. Told from the point of view of the seven-year-old son of one of the sisters, this memory play reveals this family’s resilience in the face of change. Widely regarded as Brian Friel’s masterpiece, this haunting play is Friel’s tribute to the spirit and valor of the past.
