Dancing at
Lughnasa is by Brian Friel, one of Ireland’s finest playwrights. Set in the
summer of 1936, during the Celtic harvest festival Lughnasa, the play is told
through the memories of Michael, recalling those days of growing up in the
northwest county of Donegal with his mother, her three sisters, and an uncle
priest recently returned from his missionary days in Africa. The play won Best
Play awards from both the Olivier Award in Great Britain and the Tony Award in
the US.
