Lady Spider

FORBHREATHNÚ

  • Drámadóir

    Based on the tale of Deirdre from the Ulster Cycle without the lyricism of Synge or Yeats Deirdre plays. In this version Deirdre has now become the Lady Spider, the creature that consumes her mates, a Deirdre who, when Naoise is treacherously slain, is prepared to live so that she can suck the marrow from Conor's brittle bones. The action takes place in a forest in Ulster, near Armagh on an early spring morning, near the Court of King Conor MacNessa, among sandhills on the coast of Scotland on an Autumn afternoon and at Conor MacNessa's hunting lodge, near Dundalk.
