By Eimear McBride
Adapted for the stage by Annie Ryan
We’re thrilled to give Bristol audiences the opportunity to see the multi award-winning, sell-out hit of the 2014 Dublin Theatre Festival and the 2015 Edinburgh Fringe Festival; Annie Ryan’s courageous and startling adaptation of Eimear McBride’s award-winning novel.
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.
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, transpose the novel effortlessly to the stage.
Winner of The Amnesty International Freedom of Expression Award 2015 and a Scotsman Fringe First Award, A Girl is A Half-formed Thing features the winner of The Stage Acting Award, Edinburgh Festival 2015, Aoife Duffin, in a career-defining role.
An unforgettable theatrical experience.
