By the Bog of Cats by Marina Carr( Book )

20 editions published between 1998 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 232 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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. At the age of seven, Hester was abandoned on the side of the bog by her wild and fiercely independent mother, Big Josie Swane. Hester has spent a lifetime waiting for Big Josie to return. To compound her sense of abandonment, Hester's long-term lover, Carthage Kilbride, with whom she has a seven-year-old daughter, is selling her "down the river" for the promise of land and wealth through a marriage with the local big farmer's daughter. Alone and dejected, Hester has no one to whom she can turn except the local misfits, Monica Murray and the Catwoman. As ever in Carr's dramas, the small community is populated by richly woven characters--from the outrageous, stultifying mother of the groom, Mrs. Kilbride, to the brutal and mercenary farmer, Xavier Cassidy. In the final moments of the action, we witness a woman provoked beyond the limits of human endurance. By the Bog of Cats is a furious, uncompromising tale of greed and betrayal, of murder and profound self-sacrifice."--Publisher's description

"Vronsky What were you thinking about with your head stuck to the watering can? Anna Oh, the same, always the same. I was thinking about my happiness and about my unhappiness. Russia is changing. Rules have been broken. Chaos is looming. Families are falling apart. Tolstoy's Anna Karenina is an examination of a country in the midst of extraordinary change. Through the impact of one woman's decision, it looks at the troubling cost of love on the human soul. Marina Carr brings a new perspective to Anna Karenina in her stage adaptation of this epic love story, which opened at the Abbey Theatre, Dublin, in December 2016."--Quatrième de couverture
Women in Irish drama : a century of authorship and representation( )

6 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume of essays explores the fascinating and immensely rich legacy of Irish women playwrights throughout the twentieth century and opens up essential dialogue on the politics of authorship, representation and the 'canon' of Irish theatre. Ideological, historical and cultural issues are discussed in relation to the performance of woman, gender, sexuality and the body on the Irish stage in plays by women and, to a lesser extent, by men. An appendix lists over two hundred Irish women playwrights and their works, contesting the traditional concept of Irish theatre as primarily a site of male authorship and authority. In this book unknown territories are discovered and familiar ones are renegotiated, as the histories of Irish theatre are expanded, challenged and critiqued. Women in Irish Drama opens a space for previously forgotten or silenced voices and marks an exciting new beginning for the way in which Irish theatre is considered in the twenty-first century
