Woman and Scarecrow

presented by UCC Dramat

“It’s a terrible state of affairs to arrive at the close of your life and realise you’ve nothing to confess …though, I suppose I committed the greatest sin of all… I refused to be happy”

The character of Woman is dying. Mother to eight children and wife to an unfaithful husband, she spends her final hours with Scarecrow, her alter ego – her closest confidante and greatest critic. Together, as death noisily interrupts from the sidelines, they question her life and imagine what else could have been. Written by Marina Carr, one of Ireland’s leading playwrights, Woman and Scarecrow is full of bitter humour and brutal honesty; a fiercely passionate and beautiful lament for a life half-lived.

This production marks the directorial debut of Megan O’Connor.


Running from Wednesday 13th to Saturday 16th February. Tickets cost €10 or €8 (Full Price / Concession).
