The story of Hester Swane, an Irish traveller with a deep and unearthly connection to her land.
Tormented by the memory of a mother who deserted her, Hester is once again betrayed, this time by the father of her child, the man she loves. On the brink of despair, she embarks on a terrible journey of vengeance as the secrets of her tangled history are revealed. Director, Emma Jane Nulty says, ‘this is a play that speaks to audiences now. Identity is a core part of who we are. In Hester, we see the struggles of someone trying to understand theirs and how other people decide whether we belong or don’t belong. Carr’s By the Bog of Cats is an extraordinary journey that blends the mythic and the real, the dark and the comic.’
Taking place in the Dalkey Town Hall on Wednesday 22nd to Saturday 25th February at 8pm. Not suitable for children.
