It is rare that we have a chance to see the local production of a play which earned the Tony “Best Play” award.

But for two more weeks, you can experience Oak Park Festival Theatre’s powerful performance of Brian Friel’s masterpiece, Dancing at Lughnasa.

It is the poignant story of the five adult, unmarried Mundy sisters, living together in rural
County Donegal in 1936. Their bare, traditional existence is interrupted by the festival of Lughnasa, which celebrates the pagan god of the harvest with revelry and dancing.

The professional cast is terrific. You will regret not having seen this production.  Performances are Thursdays through Saturdays at
, Sundays at , through Aug. 23, in Austin Gardens,

Lake Street
Forest Avenue
. Tickets are available at the box office.
