Dancing at Lughnasa

The Rome Savoyards and Plays in Rome present Dancing at Lughnasa, a 1990 play by award-winning Irish playwright Brian Friel.

Set in 1936 in Ireland's Co. Donegal, around the Celtic harvest festival of Lughnasadh, the play is loosely based on the lives of Friel's mother and aunts. When the five unmarried Mundy sisters welcome home their elder brother from a life as a missionary in Uganda, his arrival spells trouble on the horizon.

Considered one of the greatest living English-language dramatists, Friel recently celebrated his 85th birthday.

Directed by Sandra Provost, starring Fabiana De Rose, Michael Fitzpatrick, Carolyn Gouger, Shane Harnett, Lydia O'Kane, William O'Neill, Gabriella Spadaro and Shelagh Stuchbery. 

In English. 4-7 Feb 20.30, 8-9 Feb 17.30. Bookings playsinrome@yahoo.com, tel. 347/8248661.
