August, 1936, rural Ireland. Step into the kitchen of the five fiercely proud Mundy sisters, a place for talking, laughing, and lively dancing - moments that defy the hardships of their daily life. Their brother, a missionary, has just returned from Uganda, and the sisters find themselves each on the brink of momentous change. Brian Friel's much loved masterpiece captures a beautiful and exuberant sliver of these women's lives, a summer where
love - and everything else - seemed possible.
Winner of the 1992 Tony Award for Best Play, the Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Broadway Play and the New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Play. Chosen by Time magazine as one of the ten best plays for 1991.
