Dancing at Lughnasa
In an Irish town you’ve never heard of, meet five sisters you will never forget.
Life isn’t easy in 1930s rural Ireland, but five unmarried sisters laugh, argue, and dance together as they eke out a living. Widely regarded as playwright Brian Friel’s masterpiece, this haunting play won 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.
Join us in the lobby before the show for a Pop-up Pub! One hour before each performance of Dancing at Lughnasa the CCPA lobby will transform into a Pop-up Pub, complete with traditional Irish musicians and expanded concessions offerings.
