Winner of London's Best Play Award, by Ireland's leading playwright and the author of Translations, one of the earliest production triumphs at the Huntington, Aristocrats is an eloquent, comic, and elegiac portrayal of a family in transition.

Meet the O'Donnells, the last of a dynasty of Irish "aristocrats," as they gather together on the eve of their youngest daughter's wedding.

Friel captures the beauty and lyricism of the Irish tradition in this moving tale of human frailty and spiritual fortitude.
