Dancing at Lughnasa by Brian Friel

Winner of an Olivier Award and a Tony Award, Dancing at Lughnasa is one of the greatest and most loved Irish plays of recent times.

Set in County Donegal in 1936 during the Celtic harvest festival of Lughnasadh, the play tells the story of the five Mundy sisters and their brother Jack, who has returned home from the missions after 25 years away.

As part of Dublin Theatre Festival 2015 this eagerly anticipated new production of Brian Friel’s masterpiece, directed by award-winner Annabelle Comyn, will mark the 25th anniversary of the play’s premiere in Dublin.

Dancing at Lughnasa will be at the Gaiety Theatre, Dublin from 6 – 11 October 2015. Get your tickets here.
