Spring Season 2003

Dancing at Lughnasa by Brian Friel depicts the days in the life of the Mundy family during the harvest time in 1936, on a small Donegal holding outside Ballybeg. There are five unmarried sisters, Father Jack, a brother brought back from Africa where he was a missionary priest under a cloud of suspicion, and the seven year old Michael, illegitimate son of the youngest sister.
