Dancing at Lughnasa

26 April 2023 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

The Reading Circle is delighted to invite you to join them to watch the film adaptation of Dancing at Lughnasa. This is a 1998 Irish-British-American period drama film adapted from the 1990 Brian Friel play Dancing at Lughnasa, directed by Pat O’Connor. The film competed in the Venice Film Festival of 1998. It won an Irish Film and Television Award for Best Actor in a Female Role by Brid Brennan. Brian Friel’s play is an astonishing evocation of a family’s world on the brink of change, in County Donegal, 1936. Five sisters bring up the fatherless son of one of them. They are later joined by their brother and the boy’s father. Then something happens that threatens to disrupt this system beyond repair.

This event is free for all to attend.
