Quotes & Highlights

Dancing at Lughnasa is now receiving an altogether beguiling revival by Raven Theatre in a fleet and refreshingly unsentimental production…One of the most attractive and welcoming storefront operations in the city.” —Chicago Sun-Times
Dancing at Lughnasa moves to a zestful and youthful beat…smart, visually appealing and refreshingly unsentimental.” —Chicago Tribune

Description

Brian Friel’s award-winning Irish drama tells the story of five sisters eking out an existence on a farm in a remote region of Donegal, Ireland. In their struggle for survival, they celebrate their lives with dance, humor and illusions of romance, while desperately trying to maintain their way of life in a rapidly changing world.
