SSCC Theatre is pleased to announce their upcoming auditions for the fall production of By the Bog of Cats, by Marina Carr.

Loosely based on Euripides’ tragedy Medea, this is the prophetic tale of Hester Swane, an Irish Traveller, who attempts to come to terms with a lifetime of abandonment in a world where all whom she has loved have discarded her. Set on the bleak, ghostly landscape of the Bog of Cats, this provocative drama discloses one woman’s courageous attempts to lay claim to that which is hers, as her world is torn in two.

Auditions, open to community members and students, will be held on Friday, December 14 at 6:30 p.m. in The Edward K. Daniels Auditorium at the Central Campus of Southern State Community College, in Hillsboro, OH. Those interested in auditioning should prepare and memorize a dramatic one to two-minute monologue. Those interested on working in available crew positions will be asked to complete an interview during auditions. If you’re interested in auditioning, but unavailable to attend the audition date, please contact Rainee Angles to schedule an alternate audition date prior to December 14.

By the Bog of Cats, directed by Rainee Angles, will be performed April 5 – 7, 2019. For more information about By the Bog of Cats, available roles, and a rehearsal schedule, please visit
