“Board my body up. I’m not for loving. Anymore.”
Adapted by Corn Exchange’s Annie Ryan from the extraordinary debut novel by Eimear McBride, 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. Hailed by The New York Times as a “haunting work [which] honors the hopelessness”, McBride’s novel is strikingly transposed to the stage with an unrelenting and biting wit.
This production is strictly 16+ due to strong adult themes.
Running from Wednesday 6th to Saturday 9th February. Tickets cost €10 or €8 (Full Price / Concession).
