Scarecrow

Date: 1 Sep 2018

American writer Don Nigro’s Scarecrow tells the story of Cally, a young woman who lives a lonely and claustrophobic life with her eccentric shut-in mother in an isolated farmhouse on the edge of a cornfield.

Cally is both spooked and spellbound by the scarecrow that keeps watch. When Cally meets a strange man who beckons her into the cornfields, she is led into a web of lust and betrayal.

One of America’s prolific dramatists, Don Nigro has written over 400 plays and despite this, he remains relatively unknown to the general public. In ​Scarecrow​, audiences both familiar and unfamiliar with his work are invited to explore this dark and obscure play.

Co-directed by Deborah Jones (​Nell Gwynn,​ New Theatre) and Naomi Livingstone, the cast features Romney Stanton, Blake Wells and Gemma Scoble.​
