Dancing at Lughnasa by Brian Friel

The play tells the story of the five Mundy sisters after the return of their brother, a missionary priest in Uganda for twenty-five years, to the small Donegal town of Ballybeg. It is the first week of August, 1936 and the town’s inhabitants are celebrating the festival of Lugh…an ancient Irish pagan god. The action takes place in the kitchen and garden of the cottage and reveals the tensions, frustrations and fears of the sisters as they try to nurse their brother back to health. This semi-autobiographical story is humorous, tragic and compelling.

Performance by Andersonstown Community Theatre. Directed by Marnie O’Doherty.
