In the Summer of 1936, in rural County Donegal, seven-year old Michael lives with his mother, her four sisters and their older brother Jack, a missionary priest returned from Africa. Life is simple, making ends meet is hard, but when the sisters acquire their first wireless radio, what dreams do they dare to dream?
The Mundy sisters laugh, cry and dance as the dusk sets on the life they know and lost loves and opportunities blow away forever. This magical, moving, memory story is filled with dark humour and tenderness. It is a vital, life-affirming play about ambition, happiness and love.
Sue Lefton directs the Mercury Theatre Company in Brian Friel’s Olivier and Tony Award-winning play which premiered in 1990 and has been produced in the West End and on Broadway.
