A Galway Girl
A one-act play by Geraldine Aron.
The original text
One of Aron's "Irish" plays, but written in Cape Town, it is similar in its poetic and minimalist form to her earlier Bar and Ger, and tells the story of a mismatched couple through thirty-five years of marriage with humour and tenderness.
First performed in 1979, first in Cape Town, later in Galway.
