The Country Girls
Grace Molony makes a beautiful professional debut a month before she was due to graduate from drama school. Moving from gawky to elegant, from ankle socks to wobbly high heels, she is moonily intelligent and shadowed by a sense of loss – of people and of possibility.
Molony’s Kate is particularly fine, like a freshly hatched chick, full of undimmed optimism and awkward passion, mourning the death of her beloved mother and determined to escape her lonely, drunken father, whose inarticulate black rage surely symbolises the darkness of rural Ireland itself.Claire Allfree
