Five grown sisters in Ireland in the 1930s are desperate to find some form of happiness in Brian Friel’s play, Dancing at Lughnasa, which will be presented by the ASU theatre program beginning Thursday, April 21, at 8 p.m. in the Maxwell Performing Arts Theatre.
The 1992 Tony Award-winning play is told through the memory of a seven-year-old boy, the son of the youngest sister, who as an adult attempts to remember the events of his childhood. One of the biggest themes in the play takes the form of dance–both in the literal sense of people dancing to music and the dancing that is created by the minute movements in a kitchen, and the dance of wordplay that people partake in every day.
Dancing at Lughnasa is directed by Mike Smith, visiting director and scenic designer at ASU. The play will also be presented at 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, April 22-23, and at 3 p.m. on Sunday, April 24.
