Las Vegas’ theatrical maven, Barbara Brennan, directs Brian Friel’s beloved paean to the intricacies of life in rural Ireland, Dancing at Lughnasa. Set in the summer of 1936, this haunting play tells the story of five unmarried sisters living in a small, desolate Irish village. Poor as poor can be, the family navigates their lives with love, passion and an unbreakable connection to each other. When their quiet lives are interrupted by the return of a beloved but troubled brother, the foundation of the family is cracked forever. With its lyrical language, evocative music and joyful lust for life, Dancing at Lughnasa will grip your heart and won’t let go.
