Dancing At Lughnasa serves as Friel's quick glimpse at a moment long gone. I was recently in Ireland and heard about Friel, an Irish native, and his powerful work. Lughnasa is not a play of simple entertaiment. It is a complex work of art, filled with personal revelations, symbols and ideas that work together to reveal universe. It is a great play because it holds up to close reading and scrutiny. This is a riveting story of the family dynamic among five sisters and the men in their lives.
