Description

This third richly varied collection of plays by Marina Carr was published to coincide with the Royal Shakespeare Company’s premiere of Hecuba at the Swan Theatre, Stratford-upon-Avon, in September 2015.

Sixteen Possible Glimpses imagines sixteen fleeting moments in Anton Chekhov’s short life and work. Phaedra Backwards retells the Phaedra myth to discover what shaped her. The Map of Argentina offers a meditation on love and what happens when it is denied, or pursued and hunted down. Hecuba was written in reaction to the bad press this Trojan queen receives, and reimagines how she may have suffered and reacted. Indigo is a dark and passionate romance amongst fairies, demons, ghouls and every sort of fantastic creature out of folklore and myth.
