City Theater Company rounds out their 30th Anniversary Season in 2024 with Brian Friel’s Dancing At Lughnasa. Dedicated to the playwright’s mother and aunts, this beloved Irish "memory play" revolves around the lives - and loves - of five sisters in a small Donegal town during the summer harvest festival of the title.

Originally staged at Dublin's Abbey Theatre, Dancing At Lughnasa enjoyed a subsequent 1991 Tony-Award Winning Broadway run and a 2023 critically acclaimed revival at The National in London that featured actors from the popular television show Derry Girls. It was also adapted for a feature film starring Meryl Streep.

Friel’s autobiographical masterpiece plays out through the memories of its narrator, who recounts the events of a single summer from his childhood in 1936 Ireland.

Dancing at Lughnasa stars Daryan Borys, Kate Brennan, Éibhleann Clyne, Jessica Jordan, Aidan McDonald, Kerry Kristine McElrone, Paul McElwee, and Jennifer Youngblood. Directed by Mary Catherine Kelley. Stage Managed by Stuart Thomas. Choreographed by Dawn Morningstar. Music Directed by Joe Trainor. Dialect Coaching by Michael Toner. Set Design by Rick Neidig. House Manager Julie Snow Regan. Promotional art by Joe del Tufo/Moonloop Photography and Joe Trainor.

TICKET DETAILS: General admission $45. Military/Student with ID $35. Youth under 12 $15.

Dancing at Lughnasa runs April 19, 20, 21, 24, 25, 26, 27. All shows at 8:00 P.M. except for the sole matinee performance on April 21 at 2:00 P.M.. Please join us for an Opening Night Reception will take place in the museum lobby immediately following the performance.
