Dancing at Lughnasa

Dancing at Lughnasa performed at the Irish Classical Theatre, Buffalo, NY

Tony Award Winner! From Ireland's greatest living playwright. The five unmarried and struggling Mundy sisters in the summer of 1936 are recalled in this nostalgic and vivid memory play.  When their brother, a missionary whose beliefs have been compromised, returns after 25 years in Africa, pagan and Christian traditions collide, and in a moving and iconic scene, the sisters dance, defiantly and with wild abandon, in the light of the fires honoring the Harvest god, Lugh, sensing that their way of life may be slipping away forever.
