Dancing at Lughnasa Overview

Dancing at Lughnasa, a memory play by Brian Friel, is narrated by the adult character of Michael who recalls the events of the play through his seven-year old self. In August of 1936, near the town of Ballybeg in Ireland, the Mundy sisters have purchased their first wireless radio. It is an odd radio, because it is unreliable. Sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn’t. Whenever it does, there is great cause for celebration, and the sisters dance and sing.
