Ordinary people, like the four girls and a “wee English fella” who form the Derry Girls. The tale of Erin (Saorise Monica-Jackson), Michelle (Jamie-Lee O’Donnell), Orla (Louise Harland), Clare (Nicola Coughlan), and James (Dylan Llewellyn), growing up and navigating sexuality, friendship, and drugged scones has resonated with viewers from the USA, Great Britain, and even Martin Scorsese.
