Woman and Scarecrow
Anyone can get through the first half. You start a life. You finish it. You don t bail out at the crossroads because you don t like the scenery. In Woman and Scarecrow the title characters, in exile from the best of themselves , trade litanies of recriminations as they mourn their capacity to love. This deathbed drama pitches old friends and battle-weary foes against each other in a sustained howl against the first law. This world s job is to take everything from you. Yours is not to let it. It hinges on Woman s last request, to return west where she might find some kind of miracle , that moment of grace in which anything can happen . Her latest play, a Royal Court production, is a brave addition to Marina Carr s extraordinary, passionate art.
