A Girl is a Half-formed Thing
BY EIMEAR MCBRIDE
ADAPTED FOR THE STAGE AND DIRECTED BY ANNIE RYAN

“One of the best stage adaptations of a novel you are likely to see.” – The Sunday Times
“A performance of extraordinary courage.” – The Daily Telegraph
The Corn Exchange, one of Ireland’s leading independent theater companies, makes its New York debut with Annie Ryan’s adaptation of the award-winning novel by Eimear McBride. The sold-out hit of the 2014 Dublin Theatre Festival and 2015 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, A Girl is a Half-formed Thing follows, with vivid intensity and originality, the inner narrative of a girl from womb to age twenty.
In a career-defining performance, Aoife Duffin portrays a character of astonishing resilience and intelligence, determined to rise above her deprived childhood in Ireland. Rebellious and unrelenting, with biting wit and brilliant spark, McBride writes with an urgency and honesty that “transposes effortlessly to the stage, as if this is where it belongs” (The Guardian UK).
