Woman And Scarecrow

Set and Costume Design


Director: Matthew Holmquist

Writer: Marina Carr

Context:  A woman lies on her deathbed in her final hours. Mother to eight children and a wife to an unfaithful husband.  She is plagued by Scarecrow her alter ego. Together with her greatest critique yet closest confidence, she revisits her life paired with biting humour and brutal honesty. 

Vision:  Due to the play's connection with the land and Ireland, I created a play set in the landscape of Connemara where Scarecrow, her protector, slowly tears the floorboards away showing her return to the land and end of life. Inspired by greek mythology and celtic burriels to transform the bed into a boat to guide her to safety in the afterlife.
