Dancing At Lughnasa – May 17 – June 9
The story of five unmarried sisters eking out their lives in a small village in Ireland in 1936. Their spare existence is interrupted by brief colorful bursts of music from the radio, their only link to the romance and hope of the world at large. Widely regarded as Brian Friel’s masterpiece, this haunting play is a tribute to the spirit and valor of the past.
