Dancing at Lughnasa
Thursday 7 - Saturday 9 April, 7.45pm

Ticket Price
£10

In a cottage just outside the village of Ballybeg live the five unmarried Mundy sisters and their older brother Jack, who has just returned after 25 years working as a missionary priest in Uganda.

Living with them is Michael, the seven-year-old illegitimate son of the youngest sister.

The sisters’ harmonious, if impoverished, lives are disrupted by occasional visits from Michael’s father.

It is harvest time in County Donegal in 1936 and the play takes place around the ancient Celtic festival of Lughnasa. This creates a tension between the strict behaviour demanded by the Catholic Church and the emotional paganism of the local festival.
