Winner of numerous literary awards including the Baileys Women's Prize for Fiction 2014 and sell out hit of the 2015 Edinburgh Fringe Festival and 2014 Dublin Theatre festival, Eimear McBride’s 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 amids 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.
