A woman – gaunt and ill, haggard after giving birth eight times – faces death. What was life? What was love? What else could have been? Full of mordant, bitter humour, this is a passionate threnody from one of Ireland's leading playwrights.

Woman and Scarecrow premiered at the Royal Court Theatre, London, in June 2006.
