Woman and Scarecrow is by the award-winning British playwright, Marina Carr. A woman, with a stained past that's made her bitter at the world, lies patiently on her deathbed. In her wardrobe looms a deathly entity waiting to take her. Her only companion is Scarecrow, a spiritually-connected being that has accompanied Woman her entire life and now sits with her until the end. Woman and Scarecrow look back at their shared history and bicker over the many choices they've made, slowly coming to terms with their identity. Woman and Scarecrow is a Faustian tale enriched with Carr's poetic dialogue and gothic atmosphere. The NY Times calls it "a blistering beauty of a play that rages with regret and pitch-black humor at the wasted years of a misspent life."

Woman and Scarecrow features Tracy Ferguson ’22, Kierstin Jones ’21, Kierstin Bjork ’21, and guest artist Liam Bray. It will be directed by Park Lytle '21 with costume Designs by Julianna Gentile '22. It is co-produced by Park Lytle '21 and Kierstin Jones '21.

Woman and Scarecrow is Theatre Fairfield's annual Independent Project, which is sponsored by the Jamie Hulley Arts Foundation. Each year, advanced theatre students have the opportunity to apply for a grant from the Jamie Hulley Arts Foundation to produce an entirely student-run production at the start of the Spring semester. Upon approval from both the theatre faculty and the Jamie Hulley Arts Foundation Board of Directors, students put the lessons they have learned as theatre students at Fairfield to create a full theatre piece on their own. The project teaches students to put their production experience into action, free to problem-solve and collaborate amongst their peers.

Due to the current regulations in place because of the pandemic, Woman and Scarecrow will be streamed over Zoom. You will be able to sit comfortably in your home and watch the performance! When you purchase a ticket, you will then be sent a Zoom link via email on the day of the performance. Theatre Fairfield will have Tech Support on call to assist you as needed.
