Loyola University Chicago Theatre Department Presents: Dancing at Lugansac by Brian Friel
CHICAGO, April 25, 2006 Loyola University Chicago students will be performing in Brian Friel’s, Dancing at Lugnasa, beginning Tuesday, April 26 at 7:30 pm in the Studio Theatre, 1125 West Loyola Avenue. The production is directed by Loyola student Meg Harkins.
Dancing at Lugnasa is the final production in the 2004-2005 Studio Season for the Loyola University Chicago Theatre Department. It will have a one-week run beginning April 26, 2005 until May 1, 2005. Set in the Irish countryside in 1936, Dancing at Lughnasa explores the lives of five unmarried sisters during the summer harvest festival. It is a memory play told as a flashback, and is both, a humorous and tragic, look at a family and their challenges. Friel also tells the story of his country by weaving pieces of history into the fabric of this Tony Award winning play.
Performances are Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday at 7:30 pm and Sunday at 2:00 pm. The ticket price is $5.00 for every performance.
