  1. A Raisin in the Sun: April 1-4, 2009
  2. By The Bog of Cats: April 1-4, 2009

    Set in rural Ireland, BY THE BOG OF CATS is an uncompromising tale of abandonment and shocking self-sacrifice. Hester Swane is a woman born of gypsies and tied to the bleak landscape where she has lived her whole life. Her lover, Carthage Kilbride, with whom she has a young daughter, is about to be married to another woman who will bring him land, wealth and respect. Discarded and ignored, Hester sets out with a reckless fervor to reclaim the life that she had. In this loose retelling of Euripides' MEDEA, Marina Carr blends the mythic with the modern, populating THE BOG OF CATS with misfits, witches, and ghosts. Following their sold-out production of THE PILLOWMAN in the 2007-2008 Guthrie season, Frank Theatre returns to the Dowling Studio to bring their fearless, take-no-prisoners style to this bold and uproarious play.
