By the Bog of Cats

by Marina Carr, directed by Natalie McCabe Tartière

A haunting play by prominent Irish playwright Marina Carr that loosely adapts Euripides’ ancient Greek tragedy Medea into a surreal modern tale fraught with murder, abandonment, and prophesies surrounding Irish Traveller Hester Swane. Set on the mystical site of a bog, ghosts of the past converge with spirits of the present and test the limits of a motherless mother’s undying love.
