Don't let the word "ballet" fool you -- dot:: a RotoPlastic Ballet is unlike anything you've ever… More
By Marina Carr
Directed by Des Kennedy
Starring Nanna Ingvarssson, Brian Hemmingsen, Rena Cherry Brown and Jennifer Mendenhall
Part horror story, part philosophical musing on life, Woman and Scarecrow starts and ends at the deathbed of an unnamed woman and the less than appealing characters who accompany her on her final journey, led by the Scarecrow, a woman who is more than she seems. Drawing on Celtic mythology and with a robust humour previously unseen in Carr plays, Woman and Scarecrow marks the most accomplished play to date by Ireland’s leading female playwright.
