Loosely based on Euripides’ tragedy Medea, this is the prophetic tale of Hester Swane (played by Juliane Cartaino), 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.

The cast includes: Bob Brown, Paula Campagna, Faith Fetters, Riley Griffin, Madison Hatfield, Billy Henry, Ian Holmes, Leslie Holmes, Emma Horick, Jeff Horick, Bronwyn Jones, Jackson King, Shawn Thomsen, Matthew Waits, and Sarah Wuellner.
