“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 stars Isolde Fenton and marks the directorial debut of Rosa Mäkelä.
Running from Wednesday 6th to Saturday 9th February. Tickets cost €10 or €8 (Full Price / Concession).
PLEASE NOTE: This production is strictly 16+ due to strong adult themes, including graphic descriptions of rape and physical abuse.
Each night, UCC Dramat will be collecting donations in aid of Cork Sexual Violence Centre.
