The Country Girls

9TH JUNE - 8TH JULY 2017 
Design by Richard Kent.

All Scene All Props were very pleased to have the opportunity to work with Richard Kent once again, building THE COUNTRY GIRLS for Chichester's Summer Season at the Minerva Theatre. 

The 1950s. Rural Ireland. Kate (Grace Molony) and Baba (Genevieve Hulme-Beaman) are best friends who long to escape their traditional families and convent school. When they finally rebel and make a break for it, their lives burst open. 
As they forge new indentities in Dublin, the childhood friends must discover if it possible to grow up without growing apart. 

Edna O'Brien's novel The Country Girls was controversially banned in Ireland on publication in 1960. From her much loved book, she has created a new free-flowing play which is frank, lyrical and wrenching exploration of young womean, the loss of innocence and the tenacity of love and hope. 

Director Lisa Blair makes her debut at Chichester for THE COUNTRY GIRLS, designed by Richard Kent. Lighting by Lizzie Powell, Music by Isobel Waller-Bridge and Sound Design by Christopher Shutt. 

THE COUNTRY GIRLS will run at the Minerva Theatre, from Friday 9th June until Saturday 8th July 2017. For more information and to book tickets, click here.

Reviews:

The Times: 4 stars ****
'Exceptionally good'

Portsmouth News:
'Most impressive is the universal quality of the acting here - and the highest on the acting-honours list is newcomer Grace Molony in the leading role.'

The Guardian:
'Lisa Blair's atmospheric production, with its childhood ballads and street songs, has the unexpected effect of inducing nostalgia for a vanished Ireland.'

Chichester Observer:
'Deeply-impressive, beautifully-played' 

Southern Daily Echo:
'No one should underestimate the sheer brilliance of this wonderful adaptation'
