DRAMA BRINGS A BIT OF IRELAND TO VITERBO'S BLACK BOX THEATRE

LA CROSSE, Wis.-- "Dancing at Lughnasa," a powerful Irish drama will be on stage Thursday, Nov. 11 through Monday, Nov. 15 in the Viterbo College Black Box Theatre.

Written by contemporary Irish playwright Brian Friel in 1992, this play tells the vivid and moving story of five unmarried sisters living in the Irish countryside in 1936. Set at the time of the pagan festival of Lughnasa, the play is filled with personal stories and memories, mythic folk tales, ethnic music, and the celebration of the human spirit, which can be expressed only through the revelry of the dance.

"For its portrayal of the realities of life, of family love and courage, ‘Dancing at Lughnasa,’ is one of the most celebrated plays of this decade," says director Mary Leonard, Viterbo Theatre Arts Department.

All performances begin at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $8. Call the Viterbo College Box Office at 608-796-3100 for more information.
