FAIRFIELD, Conn. – Fairfield University’s resident production company Theatre Fairfield is presenting the award winning play “Dancing at Lughnasa,” by Irish playwright and author Brian Friel, from Wednesday, Oct. 29, through Sunday, Nov. 2 at the Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts’ Wien Black Box Theatre.

Show times are 8 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday, Oct. 29-Nov. 1, and 2 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 1, and Sunday, Nov. 2.

Loosely based on Brian Friel’s own life, “Dancing at Lughnasa” is a memory play that takes place in the small Irish village Balleybeg during the summer of 1936. For years, the five Mundy sisters have gone about their mundane lives living from one day to the next. However, with the return of their older brother and the subsequent visit of a handsome face from the past, the sisters’ world begins to crumble around them.

“Dancing at Lughnasa” won London’s Olivier Award for Best Play in 1991 followed by several Tony Awards when it came to Broadway in 1992. Tickets are $12 for general admission, $6 for seniors and university staff and $5 for students. Tickets are available through the Quick Center Box Office by calling 203-254-4010, or toll-free 1-877-ARTS-396. (1-877-278-7396). Tickets can also be purchased online at the Quick Center website here .
