Dancing at Lughnasa

28 June 2017 - 1 July 2017

£10 – £14
Poulton Drama presents Dancing at Lughnasa by Brian Friel.

In the mid-1930s, in the rural village of Ballybeg County Donegal, live the Mundy girls; five sisters united in their struggle to survive, and in their sense of family identity.

Kate, the eldest of the family, is a schoolteacher but the rest get by with piecemeal work and frugal living.

When the harvest festival of Lughnasa comes around, it is an opportunity for the girls to forget life’s cares for the briefest time and lose themselves in the joy of celebrating simply being alive…

Dancing at Lughnasa is at once heart-wrenching and heart-warming; a poignant yet inspiring portrait of a family bound together by love for each other and a refusal to let adversity quench their spirit.
