Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned

By The Bog of Cats

LIMERICK’S Torch Players return to Belltable with the Irish play By the Bog of Cats. 

Set in a bleak landscape in the Irish midlands this play by contemporary Irish playwright Marina Carr, follows Hester Swane, a traveller, as she embarks on a journey of vengeance to lay claim to what is hers. 

This is a dark psychological drama and a hilarious dark comedy.

Hester doesn’t belong with the rest of the characters and her story is characterised by super-natural elements such as ghosts, curses and prophecies. It is a story of greed and betrayal, ethnic prejudices and profound self-sacrifice. A captivating story and portrayal of strong Irish female characters.

Torch Players cast and crew at the launch of Torch Players production of By The Bog of Cats which runs at Belltable from Tuesday March 5 to Saturday March 9.
