It"s the Summer of 1936 and Europe is on the verge of terrible change. The Mundy family are sheltered in their close-knit home in Ballybeg, Donegal. Michael, the illegitimate son of the youngest sister of a family of five sisters and one brother, feels the joy and security of his family and narrates us through this tale of family and trials.

When Michael's father comes home, the cracks begin to show. Secrets and sorrows break through the happiness and repressed passion is unleashed. Uncle Jack comes back from 25 years serving in Africa, and anxieties which can tear the world apart for Ballybed come to the surface. Amid all this, the joyous music of Ireland and the purity of family will pull us through.

Role # 1 - Kate Mundy Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
Kate is the eldest of the Mundy sisters and behaves as a Mother figure as a result. As a schoolteacher, she is the only wage-earner in the house, but her reputation as \'The Gander\' in the schoolroom is seen to extend into the household. She is a fiercely devout Catholic, indicated by her distaste for the pagan practices at Lughnasa and Jack\'s loss of faith. However, her sensitivity is evident throughout the play and through the narratives provided by Michael, who claims she was \"inconsolable\" when Father Jack died.

Role # 2 - Maggie Mundy Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
In place of a career, Maggie acts as the chief family homemaker. Throughout the play she is revealed as serving a deeper purpose as the \"joker\" of the family, defusing tensions as they arise. She cheekily challenges Kate\'s authority by calling her \"Kitty\", whilst being her confidant at the same time. Maggie is seen to have dreams of her own when she learns of her best friend\'s success. Her sudden quiet contemplation in her monologue is deeply contrasted with her usual fun-loving way of speaking.

Role # 3 - Rose Mundy Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
Rose is 32, but behaves much younger than her years, due to a developmental disability. This condition makes her particularly vulnerable to an unseen character, Danny Bradley, a married man, whom Rose believes is in love with her. However, her sisters believe that Bradley is exploiting Rose's simple nature for his own gain. She is particularly close to her older sister, Agnes, with whom she knits gloves to sell in the town. We learn through Michael's narrative that, after leaving home with Agnes, Rose eventually dies in a hospice for the destitute in Southwark, London, in the 1950s.

Role # 4 - Agnes Mundy Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
Agnes is quiet and contemplative, knitting gloves with Rose whilst also helping to keep the house in order, along with Maggie. She appears to be silently infatuated with Gerry and is quick to leap to his defence. However, Michael's narratives reveal Agnes' future to be bleak. Her knitting fails to support her when the knitware factory opens. Due to her sense of parental regard for Rose, she emigrates with her to London, breaking off all contact with the family, and dies in dire circumstances in the 1950s.

Role # 5 - Christina Mundy Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
At 26 years old, Chris is the youngest of the Mundy sisters, and, like Maggie, has no paid job. Gerry Evans fathered her son, Michael, seven years ago and is seen as walking in and out of their lives as he chooses. As a result, Chris fluctuates between falling into a deep depression when he leaves, yet being renewed with optimism that his next visit will be a permanent stay. Her lack of income can lead Chris to be defensive on the upbringing of her son, shown when Kate buys Michael a new spinning top at the beginning of the play.

Role # 6 - Gerry Evans Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
Gerry is initially portrayed as an intensely negative character, particularly by Kate, for having left Chris after fathering her illegitimate son, Michael. However, upon his first appearance in the play, Gerry is shown to be charming and genuinely affectionate towards Chris. His current job as a gramophone salesman (like his former job as a ballroom dancing instructor) represents his freedom, in sharp contrast to the stagnant lives of the Mundy sisters. This is made all the more obvious by the fact that he is leaving Ireland to join the International Brigade and fight in the Spanish Civil War, something that is further disapproved of by Kate. Through Michael's narration, we learn that Gerry is later left with a limp after falling off a motorbike in Barcelona. As well as having romantic feelings for Chris, Gerry seems particularly inclined towards Agnes, although the true state of their relationship remains in doubt. We learn later that he secretly has another family back in Wales, and that all his proposals of marriage to Christina have been false. Adult narrator Michael reveals that, after Gerry's death in the 1950s, he had been contacted by a half brother in South Wales, who revealed that Gerry had had a wife and several sons there at the time depicted in the drama.

Role # 7 - Michael Evans Submit yourself for this role
Seeking 1 talent(s) for this role
Michael does not appear onstage as a child, but his presence is alluded to by the other characters, while the adult Michael speaks his lines from the side of the stage. As a child, Michael is seen as being surrounded by love, since all five of the sisters dote on him. Michael also acts as a narrator, not only dictating the action as it goes on, but revealing the futures of the other characters in the play.
