Production Description

Casting "Dancing at Lughnasa," a play about the courage of five sisters in 1936 Ballybeg, Ireland as told through the memory of Michael. Faced with no meaningful work, no likelihood of a husband, and only themselves to depend upon, they still manage to find joy and humor in their lives. 1936 Ireland was a time of extreme poverty, due to the 1929 economic crash. An entire generation of young men had been lost in WW1 and very few women would find husbands. The youngest sister has had a son out of wedlock and he is now age seven. Lughnasa is the Irish Harvest Festival which always happens in late August. This is the Adobe Theater’s presentation for the Irish Play Festival.
