An amateur production by kind permission of Samuel French Ltd

Dancing At Lughnasa

by Brian Friel

Directed by Pat Dwyer

Wednesday 13th – Saturday 16th October 2010, 8.00pm.

It is 1936 in Ballybeg, County Donegal where we meet the five unmarried and impoverished Mundy sisters through the eyes of Chris’s son Michael, now in middle-age, as he looks back to the summer of 1936 when he was a boy of seven. His memories recall a surviving tradition – the Festival of Lughnasa, a time for dancing. It is also the time that Jack, a Roman Catholic priest, brother to the sisters and Michael’s uncle, returns from Uganda after twenty five years. With a wealth of humour and sadness this is a family story told with much poignancy and understanding.

CAST:

Kate………..Yvonne Ramsey
Maggie…….Marie Kelly
Agnes……..Sharon Murphy
Rose……….Lorraine Murphy
Christina….Sinead McLoughlin
Gerry………Niall Dempsey
Fr Jack……Simon Ryan
Michael……Pat Dwyer
