Dancing at Lughnasa

Off Broadway Play - Drama — 

The play summons back the memories of the end of the summer of 1936 on the eve of the celebration of the Harvest God, Lugh. The five unmarried Mundy sisters -- named for Friel's Mother and Sisters ("those five brave Glenties women") -- live in a modest Irish cottage in Donegal. On this threshold of golden autumn, the house revolves around 8-year old love-child, Michael, and the brother priest, Father Jack, who has recently returned from 25 years in aleper colony in Uganda.

Tribal Customs and Christian beliefs clash as blazing fires stoke an abandon to Lugh leaving the Mundy sisters sentenced to live purely in the past or absolutely in the present. With unfailing courage, and loving forgiveness all things conspire to irretrievably change the golden season of the Mundy's as they dance in a final celebration of life before it changes forever.

1992 Tony Award for Best Play.
