Written by Marina Carr
Directed by Maura Hanlon
In this contemporary Irish play, Hester Swane is compelled to act when in the course of one day she faces the convergence of the tragedy of her girlhood, the possible loss of her 7 year old daughter, and rejection from the passion of her life. Myth and reality, comedy and tragedy abide together in a tale of classic proportions and unforgettable characters. Winner of the Irish Theatre Award, Best Play.
`BOG’ IS COMPELLING IN SOUND AND SCOPE
“The Cape Rep Theatre is an ideal place to stage the East Coast premiere of Marina Carr’s new play, “By the Bog of Cats.” Built on a misty patch of Cape Cod’s Nickerson State Park, this remote theater has an atmosphere of marshy solitude that conjures up the midlands of Ireland, the setting of the play.” – Ryan McKittrick, Boston Globe
