Edna O’Brien revisits her era-defining debut novel in a new stage adaptation.  All of Edna O’Brien’s novels published during the 1960s were ruled “indecent and obscene” under the Censorship of Publications Act.  This started when the publication of The Country Girls caused outrage. It was banned in Ireland by the authorities and publicly burned by the clergy.  Notoriety quickly turned to fame and this coming of age story of two young women in 1950s Ireland became a best-seller. 

The Country Girls
is the Dublin: One City, One Book 2019 Choice.
