Woman and Scarecrow
Woman is dying. With quintessentially Irish wit, she and her mysterious companion Scarecrow consider what she leaves behind and what might have been as she faces the mystery of what is to come. Is that Death lurking in the wardrobe? If you liked Margaret Edson’s Wit, try Marina Carr's lyrical play. Alan Stanford directs Nike Doukas as Woman, Karen Baum as Scarecrow, Sharon Brady as Auntie Ah, and James FitzGerald as Him.
