A Girl is a Half-Formed Thing

Date: 19 Mar 2018

Eimear McBride’s debut novel A Girl Is a Half-formed Thing plunges the reader into the psyche of a girl on the cusp of adulthood.

Adapted for the stage by Annie Ryan, it was lauded as “One of the best stage adaptations of a novel you’re likely to see.” (Sunday Times).

Erin Taylor directs Ella Prince in a raw and poetic one-woman show that speaks the experience of a young woman battling the forces of stultifying religion, predatory men and a pious mother.
