A dark, hilarious comedy that delves into how far any of us would go in our desire to have it all and live the American Dream.

When it premiered in 1990, DANCING AT LUGHNASA took the world by storm, winning both the Tony and Olivier awards for Outstanding Play. Brian Friel’s haunting masterpiece is a memory play about family. It tells the story of five unmarried sisters in a small village in Ireland in August of 1936. During the Festival of Lugh, which celebrates the pagan god of the harvest with drunken revelry and dancing, their lives become filled with music and they make new discoveries that start a process that will change this family forever.

Rediscover America with RAGTIME, the epic musical adaptation of E.L. Doctorow’s classic novel that captures the American experience at the turn of the 20th century. The worlds of a wealthy white couple, a Jewish immigrant father and his daughter, and an African American ragtime musician intertwine in this sweeping musical about America’s Golden Age when our nation was mixing, boiling, and changing. Will Pomerantz, Bay Street Theater’s Associate Artistic Director, will bring together the team with which he created Bay Street’s extraordinary production of Evita to create a visionary new production of this Tony Award-winning contemporary classic to the East End.
