Dancing at Lughnasa

Lower Sixth linguists enjoy a production of ‘Dancing at Lughnasa’

Our Lower Sixth Form English Literature group and members of Aspire braved the Manchester rush hour last night to watch a production of ‘Dancing at Lughnasa’ produced by third year Drama students at Manchester Metropolitan University.


The production was spellbinding and confirmed how, in order really to appreciate the rich symbolism of Friel’s playwriting, it is important to watch as well as read his texts.

We are now looking forward to discussing the dramatic performance in our next Literature lesson and . . . we even managed to celebrate Beth and Annabel’s birthday:


Albeit in a carpark.

From start to finish, we had a fantastic evening and now eagerly await our next after-school expedition to Carol Ann Duffy’s poetry reading.
