Annie Ryan’s courageous and startling adaptation of Eimear McBride’s award-winning novel A Girl is a Half-formed Thing, returns to the stage for its US premier in April 2016 following its multi-award winning, sold-out runs at the 2014 Dublin Theatre Festival, the 2015 Edinburgh Fringe, and a major UK tour. 

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.

Featuring the winner of the Stage Acting Award Edinburgh 2015, Aoife Duffin in a career-defining role, A Girl is a Half-formed Thing is also winner of The Amnesty International Freedom of Expression Award 2015 and a Scotsman Fringe First Award.
