Be part of a moving play about five strong and determined women as Pasadena City College presents Brian Friel's "Dancing at Lughnasa," beginning Dec. 1 in the PCC Little Theatre.
Directed by professor Whitney Rydbeck, the award-winning play is a story of five unmarried sisters living out their lives in a small village in Ireland in 1936. That year, the women acquired their first radio, whose music transforms them into shrieking, stomping banshees. The action of this memory play is told through the recollections of the illegitimate son of one of the sisters. The young boy will meet his father for the first time.
"This is a stirring, moving play," Rydbeck said. "It is a true actor's piece. It has joy, sorrow, humor, hopes, and dreams."
