Lifford Players bring Brian Friel’s classic ‘Dancing at Lughnasa’ to the Alley

06 April 2018

The Lifford Players are delighted to be bringing Brian Friel’s classic play ‘Dancing at Lughnasa’ to the Alley Theatre on Wednesday 18th April.

Set in 1936, harvest time in Donegal, where the five Mundy sisters live, barely making ends meet. The two male members of the household are Brother Jack, a missionary priest, sent home from Africa by his superiors and seven-year-old Michael, child of Chris. In depicting two days in the lives of this family, Friel evokes the interior landscape of a group of people trapped in their domestic situation and the wider landscape of which they are a part.

Directed by Leo McBride, the play features local Strabane actors Arthur McGarrigle and Joanna Haughey.

Having received rave reviews and success in winning many awards on the Drama Festival Circuit with this production, Lifford Players have now qualified to take part in the Ulster Finals at the end of May in Belfast.

Come along and join Arthur and Joanna in the Alley Theatre to see The Lifford Players inject new life and passion into the Brian Friel Classic.

The Lifford Players’ refreshing production of the Friel masterpiece is not to be missed!

Tickets are £10, £7 (con) available from the Alley Theatre Box Office on 028 71 384444 or online www.alley-theatre.com
