About this show

Karesa McElheny, Attic Theatre Ensemble Artistic Director, directs Dancing at Lughnasa, by Brian Friel. This memory play is about five unmarried sisters in Ireland during the summer of 1936: the imperious teacher Kate, the irreverent big-hearted keeper of the hearth Maggie, the serene familial rudder Agnes, the sweetly eccentric and simple-minded Rose, and the lonely romantic Christina, who has creased the family reputation with an illegitimate son; all are heavenly bodies revolving around the 8-year old love child. The memories of that summer in 1936 haunt the child into manhood. Memories of love and loss. And of the women dancing, in a final celebration of life before it changed forever. There will be no performance on Friday, October 31. There will be a special Sunday performance on November 1st at 6:00 PM.
