Review: DANCING AT LUGHNASA – A strong cast and a sweet story about sisters in a small Irish town

DANCING AT LUGHNASA until 27th September

The most acclaimed  and loved play by Brian Friel, Beautifully  directed by Annabelle  Comyn.
The play is set in rural Donegal in 1936 and tells the story of the five sisters and their brother Jack.

It is about dreams and disappointments and the harsh reality of living in Donegal. A mixture  of comedy and deep sadness.

Five accomplished actresses bring vibrant life to the unmarriageable Mundy sisters, inspired by Mr. Friel’s mother and aunts, who lived on the west coast of County Donegal.
During the interval we were treated to some soda bread with cheese and pickle which tasted like it had just come from the kitchen in the Mundy household..

Amazing show and outstanding cast – this type of play stays in your thoughts

The Lyric is on a roll, one production after another bringing great Theatre to Belfast!
