By the Bog of Cats

December 1-4, 2018
Lab Theatre

By Marina Carr
Directed by Conor Gallagher
 

Set in the ghostly landscape of the bogs of Ireland, By the Bog of Cats traces the desperate journey of Hester Swane, as she fights for respect in the face of a lover’s abandonment and a society that derides her lineage.  Playwright Marina Carr’s haunting adaptation of Euripides’ Medea mixes mysticism and hard-hitting modern realism to weave a riveting tale of betrayal, sacrifice, and vengeance. 

Filled with richly symbolic dialogue…a tragic drama sprinkled with colorful characters and pure Irish humor.
