Dancing at Lughnasa
By BRIAN FRIEL
Directed by AARON POSNER
On the F. Otto Haas Stage
March 2 - April 2, 2006

Widely regarded as preeminent Irish playwright Brian Friel's masterpiece, this poetic and heartwarming story follows the lives of five sisters through their rugged family landscape in 1936 Ireland. Dancing to the music of an unreliable Marconi radio awakens long-buried desires, vanishing dreams, and a last chance at happiness.

Critical Acclaim–

"The rewards of Dancing at Lughnasa are many... the production's five women are accomplished Philadelphia actors." –Philadelphia Inquirer

"All five women are sensitively cast... the beauty [of the play] is its reverie." –WRTI

"It's a lovely evening, one that touches the heart and engages the mind, while capturing the music that underscores and enlivens the remarkably human Mundy family." –Chestnut Hill Local
