About This Show

This Tony Award winning play is the story of five unmarried sisters eking out their lives in a small village in Donegal, Ireland in August l936 during the Festival of Lughnasa. Their spare existence is interrupted by brief, colorful bursts from the radio whose music transforms them from correct Catholic women into shrieking, stomping banshees in their own kitchen. From a few small events spring the cracks that destroy the foundation of the family forever. Widely regarded as Brian Friel’s masterpiece, this haunting play is Friel’s tribute to the spirit and valor of the past.
