Scarecrow

by Don Nigro

Scarecrow had 3 performances over 18 years ago (between the 4th of October 1999 and the 4th of July 2000) at Felixstowe and Riverside Arts Centre

An American Drama.

A lonely young girl lives with her eccentric mother in an old farmhouse on the edge of a cornfield. She meets a strange man under a tree by the creek and is led step by step into a web of lust and betrayal.

Scarecrows are supposed to frighten crows, but the Scarecrow in this particular cornfield is something more. He is a symbol of forbidden lust and repressed desires, made more dangerous by the heat, landscape and repressions of the bidle belt in the remote deep south of America.

A frightening, but poetic, atmospheric and stylised play about sexual desire and recussinf seasons of evil. A kind of weird, haunted, mid-western gothic.
