Hester Swaine is having a bad day.
It hasn’t been going well for her for some time and today ,in particular,isn’t looking much better.
Hester, abandoned at childhood by her mother,has lived a very tough and hard life.
Hester has always lived at the fringe of the community both in spirit and in place.
The play takes place in the course of a single day.
And it’s not just any old day…….
It’s the wedding day of her childs father to another woman.
There is blood ,history,loves lost,Furies disappointments and treachery all served up on the same day.
Hesters traveller past also allows her to dip in to the spirit world in a way that the local community would never dare to.
It’s on this day that Hesters life will unravel and we will meet All those that haunt her, some living, some dead and some in between.
This is Hesters day.
A single day.
The day of her Swansong.
