Casting Set for Two River Theater's Dancing at Lughnasa
Jessica Stone directs Brian Friel's play, with Michael Cumpsty and more.
Two River Theater has announced casting for its production of Brian Friel's Dancing at Lughnasa, directed by Jessica Stone. Performances run April 14-May 13.
Friel's play, set in the summer of 1936, tells the story of the Mundy sisters, five unmarried women who live together in County Donegal, on the west coast of Ireland. Their brother, Father Jack, has just returned from 25 years as a missionary in Uganda. The story is framed by the memories of the narrator, Michael, the grown-up illegitimate son of one of the sisters, who also speaks the lines of his seven-year-old self as he remembers that summer, when everything seemed to be on the brink of change.
The company includes Megan Byrne (Kate), Michael Cumpsty (Jack), Meredith Garretson (Chris), Mylinda Hull (Maggie), Cillian O'Sullivan (Gerry), Christa Scott-Reed (Agnes), Mandy Siegfried (Rose), and Harry Smith (Michael).
The creative team includes choreographer Connor Gallagher, scenic designer Tobin Ost, costume designer Gabriel Berry, lighting designer Jason Lyons, sound designer Drew Levy, hair designer Cookie Jordan, and dialect coach Blake Segal.
