A woman, mother of eight and wife of an unfaithful husband lies on her death bed surveying her life and imagining what could have been.

‘Happiness! Everyone thinks they have a god-given right to it. Sure it’s only a recent invention of the Sunday papers.’

Full of black humour and brutal honesty Woman and Scarecrow is a passionate and moving lament for a life half lived. Don’t miss your chance to see this remarkable play by one of Ireland’s leading playwrights.

Gina Moxley nominated as Best Actress for the Irish Times Awards.

Reviews: 

“A significant play about human frailty and the rituals of death, perhaps the most interesting new Irish play of the past few years” - The Sunday Tribune

"This is a play that seeps into your very bones, making you realise that in squandering love we squander the best part of ourselves" - The Guardian
