Creators of festival hits Freefall, Dubliners and Desire Under the Elms, The Corn Exchange brings to the stage an extraordinary and vital new voice in contemporary fiction.
Winner of numerous literary awards including the Baileys Women's Prize for Fiction 2014, Eimear McBride’s A Girl is a Half-formed Thing follows the inner narrative of a girl from the womb to the age of twenty with vivid intensity and originality. This is a character of astonishing resilience and intelligence; someone determined to make sense of things amidst the crushing Catholicism and poverty of her Irish childhood.
Rebellious, unrelenting, with biting wit and brilliant spark, Eimear McBride writes with an urgency that will be totally electric in performance.
Adapted for the stage and directed by Annie Ryan, and featuring award-winning actress Aoife Duffin (Moone Boy), A Girl is a Half-formed Thing promises to be an unforgettable theatrical experience.
