The multi-award winning, sold-out hit of the 2014 Dublin Theatre Festival and The 2015 Edinburgh Fringe Annie Ryan?s courageous and startling adaptation of Eimear McBride?s award-winning novel returns to the stage.
The Corn Exchange, one of Ireland?s most celebrated independent theatre companies and makers of international festival hits including Man of Valour, Freefall and Dublin by Lamplight , transposes the novel ?effortlessly to the stage as if this is where it belongs?, says The Guardian.
A Girl is a Half-Formed Thing follows the inner narrative of a girl from the womb to twenty with vivid intensity and originality. This is a character of astonishing resilience and intelligence, someone determined to make sense of things amidst the deprivation of her Irish childhood. Rebellious, unrelenting with biting wit and brilliant spark Eimear McBride writes with an urgency and honesty that is totally electric in performance.
Winner of The Amnesty International Freedom of Expression Award 2015 ¬†and a Scotsman Fringe First Award and featuring the winner of The Stage Acting Award Edinburgh 2015, Aoife Duffin, in a career-defining role A Girl is a Half-Formed Thing is an unforgettable theatrical experience.
