Winner of an Olivier Award and a Tony Award, Dancing at Lughnasa is one of the most acclaimed and 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. 

The story is told by the sisters’ nephew, Michael, who recalls the summer spent with his aunts when he was seven years old.  As August gives way to September, Michael recounts his memory of childhood in his native Ballybeg, where his aunts raised him in their crumbling, rural home and where once they danced.   A wild, raucous dance.   A dance to the exciting, fleeting melody of the past and a dance against the harsh, progressive beat of the present.
