Half Full is a work-in-development showing by Aoibhin Murphy.
Aoibhín is an actor and playwright who hails from Kilkenny. A graduate of The Conservatory of Music and Drama and Columbia College, Chicago; Murphy discovered a love for directing, comedy and solo performance. Aoibhín is a current member of Devious Theatre and has been performing with them since 2009.
Aoibhín's debut One-Act play, Waking Cúin was featured in the AKA Fringe festival in August of this year and she is hoping to make a comeback with a follow-on production next year.
Half Full explores the life of Jill, a twenty-something year old millennial as she navigates her life, never feeling truly complete, searching for things to fill her up as she battles her 'casual addictions'. The idea of the piece is to explore identity and how identity and a feeling of self can sometimes be lost in current times. The hope for the future of the piece is that it can be a full-length two-handed piece that involves lots of movement and media while exploring the unique language of what it means to search for fulfillment.
"Half of the time my casual addictions get in the way. I am always hoping that people won't realize that I'm only half an adult, on the cusp of being fully formed"
* Please note; Half Full deals with the idea of consent.
