Over the Ledge Theatre is now featuring the play ‘Dancing at Lughnasa’ through Sept. 16. Winner of the 1992 Tony Award for best play, it was praised by the New York Times as being a “ravishing memory play” that “carries its characters and audience aloft.” The story is said to be loosely based on the life of its writer, Brian Friel, and begins in Ireland’s County Donegal in 1936.
“In the late summer of 1936, three remarkable events occurred in the life of 7 year old Michael Evans: his uncle Jack, a missionary priest, returned home after 25 years; he met his father; and, wonders of wonders, the Mundy sisters got a wireless radio!” write event organizers. “The adult Michael watches as his mother and aunts try to make the best of their isolated lives in rural Ireland.”
The local production will be directed by Mary Job. The play will be recurring weekly on Sunday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday in Fitzgerald Park.
The production will be held at 137 Fitzgerald Park Drive, The Ledges in Grand Ledge. From Thursday through Saturday the play will be held at 8 p.m. and 2 p.m. on Sunday. Tickets cost $10 for adults and $8 for seniors. Students can pay $6.
