Tickets: 5.00

Dancing at Lughnasa is a vital , life affirming look at rural Donegal throw the eyes of the Mundy family. Considered to be Brian Friel’s masterpiece this play is a passionate portrait of the strength and struggles of the five Mundy sisters following their loss of love and oppportunity. Set against the echos of the twentieth century this bittersweet reflection of rural Ireland in the Thirties is played out with dark humour, raw energy, and above all else tenderness.

Suitable ages 12+
