Springs Ensemble Theatre continues its tenth season with “By the Bog of Cats” by Marina Carr, a tragic tale based on Euripides’ Medea, reimagined in 1990s Irish swampland.
By the Bog of Cats follows Hester Swane, an Irish Traveller, as she tries to keep her family and life together.
She has already lost her mother, who abandoned her at a young age. Now her lover, Carthage, is leaving her for a younger, wealthier woman and threatens to take Hester’s young daughter, Josie away from her.
But Hester refuses to be left behind again and does everything she can to keep Josie with her. Populated by a colorful cast of characters, Marina Carr’s By the Bog of Cats is the atmospheric and beautifully dark tale of a woman pushed beyond her limits.
