Live Theatre Workshop Proudly Presents
Dancing at Lughnasa
By Brian Freil


Directed by
Sabian Trout
Assistant Director
Moriah Flagler


Winner of the 1992 Tony Award for Best Play, the Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Broadway Play, and the
New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Play.


This extraordinary play is the story of five unmarried sisters (Kristi Loera as Kate, Holli Henderson as Maggie, Molly Holleran as Christina, Elizabeth Leadon as Agnes, and Jodi Rankin as Rose) eking out their lives in a small village in Ireland in 1936. It is the time of the festival of Lughnasa, which celebrates the pagan god of the harvest with drunken revelry and dancing. When the sisters finally dance to a wild, pagan Irish tune, they embody the core of the human spirit that cannot be vanquished by time or loss, or fully expressed in language.


"…this play does exactly what theater was born to do, carrying both its characters and audience aloft on those waves of distant music and ecstatic release that, in defiance of all language and logic, let us dance and dream just before night must fall." â€"NY Times 


Also starring Eric Anson as Gerry, Keith Wick as Father Jack
And Cliff Madison as Michael
