JOAN AND ROBERT RECHNITZ THEATER
Five sisters, one Irish summer, and the boy who remembers it all.
Brian Friel’s “ravishing memory play” (The New York Times) about five unmarried sisters on the west coast of Ireland in 1936 won the 1992 Tony Award for Best New Play—and the hearts of audiences. Directed by Jessica Stone (A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum, Absurd Person Singular), Dancing at Lughnasa promises to cast a warm and luminous theatrical spell with its portrait of love, hardship, and, above all else, family.
WINNER TONY AWARDS 1992 BEST PLAY!
