Widely regarded as playwright Brian Friel’s masterpiece, Dancing at Lughnasa is a memory play about five unmarried sisters eking out their lives in a small Irish village. Time Magazine called it “the most elegant and rueful memory play since The Glass Menagerie.”

Quotidian Theatre Company’s production of this play runs through May 20, and is directed by Craig Allen Mummey and features David Dubov, Rebecca Ellis, Doug Krehbel, Steve LaRocque, Leah Mazade, Stephanie Mumford, Laura Russell, and Alyssa Sanders.

All performances are held at The Writer’s Center: 4508 Walsh Street, Bethesda, MD 20815. There is ample parking across the street (free on weekends), and the theatre is just blocks away from the Bethesda Metro Station on the red line.

Showtimes are 8pm Fridays and Saturdays, and 2pm Sundays, with one additional 2pm performance on Saturday, May 19.
