Synopsis of Play

 

Loosely based on Euripide’s tragedy - Medea. Carr’s lyrical and timeless play tells the prophetic tale of Hester Swane, an Irish traveller , who struggles to come to terms with a lifetime of abandonment. This is the story of one woman’s courageous attempts to lay claim to what is hers: her caravan, her house and her daughter.

On the brink of despair, she embarks on a journey of vengeance as the secrets of her tangles history are revealed.
