'Dancing at Lughnasa' Auditions
We invite you to join us on this magical journey of memory, illusion and dancing.
'Dancing at Lughnasa' is a powerful play set in the summer of 1936, the last time the five Irish Mundy sisters were together. It is a summer of changes. Uncle Jack returns from a long mission in Abyssinia, their first radio brings music into the home and a young man with a lust for adventure returns for a visit. 'Dancing at Lughnasa' is a story told by the youngest sister’s son, whose memories of this fateful summer transports the audience back in time to meet these strong women and their family. He says at the end, “What fascinates me about that memory is that it owes nothing to fact. In that memory atmosphere is more real than incident and everything is simultaneously actual and illusory…Dancing as if language no longer exists because words were no longer necessary.” We invite you to join us on this magical journey of memory, illusion and dancing.
