Dancing at Lughnasa

by Brian Friel

Set in the Irish County Donegal in 1936, the play follows the lives of five impoverished, unmarried women and explores the impact of their brother's return from Ugandan missionary work and intrusions made by one of the women's charming but unreliable former suitors. Filled with troubled yet relatable characters and poetic and insightful monologues, Dancing at Lughnasa explores themes of family, loneliness, the pursuit of a happier life, and the emotions at the core of human relationships.
