The Mares

A Tasmanian Theatre Company and Ten Days on the Island co-production

The moon is bright. The tide is low.
Bring back daughters. Restore our army.

Stellar playwright Kate Mulvany and award-winning director Leticia Cáceres, two of Australia’s most accomplished artists, evoke the visceral, blood-soaked biosphere of the Amazon warrior women of Greek mythology.

This brutal, prescient and poetic new work has the wit, wry humour and gravitas we have come to expect from Kate Mulvany. It’s a play for our times, exploring themes of power – physical, sexual and psychological – and weaving parallel narratives as it moves seamlessly through time, style and gender, galloping towards an unexpected yet inevitable climax.

Directed by Leticia Cáceres 
Design by Jill Munro
