By the Bog of Cats Workshop

The scorn of Hester Swayne, a woman abandoned once and discarded later, threatens a whole community as she awaits her mother’s return to the Bog of Cats: ‘God’s punishing me but I won’t take his blows lyin’ down’. Forgiveness, vengeance and disparate forces figure in the tangled history embodied in her own powerful drama as it makes its way through heartbreak and, occasionally, hilarity, and its secrets unfold towards its tragic conclusion.
