Woman is dying. Mother to eight children and wife to an unfaithful husband, she is living her final hours with Scarecrow, her alter ego – her closest confidante and greatest critic – as death noisily interrupts from the sidelines. Together, the women revisit her life with biting humor and brutal honesty. Woman and Scarecrow is a fierce, passionate, and moving lament for a life half-lived.

Irish Repertory Theatre is proud to present the New York premiere of Woman and Scarecrow by Marina Carr, one of Ireland’s most acclaimed living playwrights. Carr is the author of more than 20 published plays, and has won numerous awards, including The Irish Times’ playwright award, the E.M. Forster Prize from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, and the 2017 Windham Campbell prize. Woman and Scarecrow premiered at the Royal Court Theatre, London, in June 2006. It is Carr’s first work to be performed at Irish Repertory Theatre.
