1. For truly a unique weekend, book your tickets for the ‘Woman and Scarecrow’ play by Marina Carr
The hard-hitting play will hit home for many, as the theme explores realistic themes of an unfulfilled life and crossroads that all of us come to face from time to time.
What’s the play about?
An unnamed woman lies on her deathbed, possibly dying of cancer, haggard after giving birth eight times; she reflects on life and love, the highs and lows, her children and her wayward husband. Was that it? With her in this contemplation of an unfulfilled life is the ambiguous Scarecrow, offering comfort and recrimination in equal measure: “this world’s job is to take everything from you. Yours is not to let it.” And “anyone can get through the first half. You start a life. You finish it. You don’t bail out at the crossroads because you don’t like the scenery.”
When? Next Saturday, June 19
Where? Theatre at Mall of the Emirates
