Orlagh Cassidy
Casting has been announced for Irish Rep's 20th Anniversary production of Brian Friel's Dancing at Lughnasa, to be presented on the theater's Francis J. Greenburger Mainstage, October 20-December 11, with an opening set for October 30. As previously reported, Charlotte Moore will direct.

Winner of the 1992 Tony Award for Best Play, the work summons back the memories of the end of the summer of 1936 on the eve of the celebration of the Harvest God, Lugh. It centers around the five unmarried Mundy sisters who live in a modest Irish cottage in Donegal.

The cast will include Orlagh Cassidy, Kevin Collins, Michael Countryman, Annabel Hägg, Jo Kinsella, Aedín Moloney, Ciarán O'Reilly, and Rachel Pickup.

The production will feature set design by Antje Ellerman, costume design by Linda Fisher, lighting design by Richard Pilbrow and Michael Gottlieb, music by Ryan Rumery and Christian Frederickson, sound by M. Florian Staab, and choreography by Barry McNabb.
