"Real and flawed humans, complex relationships, desperate love, and inevitable tragedy" Theatre Pro Rata's 'By the Bog of Cats'

 

"Nary a cat appears in 'By the Bog of Cats.' But what does make an appearance are real and flawed humans, complex relationships, desperate love, and inevitable tragedy. It's not a happy story, but it's a powerful one, and beautifully told." ~Cherry and Spoon full review: https://bit.ly/cs_bog
 
Theatre Pro Rata's "By the Bog of Cats" written by Irish playwright Marina Carr is at The Crane Theater and plays through April 2.
