A GIRL IS A HALF-FORMED THING by Annie Ryan
presented by Brevity Threatre
There is no more important time than now to stage this play. A Girl is a Half Formed Thing will carry you into the heart, mind and body of a girl. Subjected to the forces of stultifying religion, predatory men and a pious mother, she will form in front of your eyes.
This one-woman show inhabits and speaks the experience of a young woman coming of age. It is raw and poetic. It carries forward the greatest of Irish literary legacy - a Joycean stream of consciousness set in an abstract Beckettian landscape. But this is her voice. The voice of a young woman in this world of men.
We invite you to jump in the fierce current that is the lyrical and poetic stream of this play.
