Dancing at Lughnasa

By Brian Friel
Directed by Roger Haines

Dancing at Lughnasa by Brian Friel depicts the days in the life of the Mundy family during the harvest time in 1936, on a small Donegal holding outside Ballybeg. There are five unmarried sisters, Father Jack, a brother brought back from Africa where he was a missionary priest under a cloud of suspicion, and the seven year old Michael, illegitimate son of the youngest sister.
