By the Bog of Cats

Set in the ghostly landscape of the bogs of Ireland, By the Bog of Cats traces the desperate journey of Hester Swane as she fights for respect in the face of a lover’s abandonment and a society that derides her lineage. Playwright Marina Carr’s haunting adaptation of Euripides’ Medea mixes mysticism and hard-hitting modern realism to weave a riveting tale of betrayal, sacrifice, and vengeance. USC Department of Theatre and Dance presents By the Bog of Cats December 1 – 4 at the UofSC Theatre. Tickets $10.
