The Girl Who Fell review round-up at Trafalgar Theatre ★★★★

Reviews are in for The Girl Who Fell at Trafalgar Theatre.

Sarah Rutherford’s poignant and darkly funny play about loss, guilt and Snapchat stars Claire Goose (EastEnders), Navin Chowdhry (Doctor Foster), Rosie Day (Outlander) and Will Fletcher in his professional stage debut

The play follows a mother’s search for answers following the suicide of her teenage daughter and the role played by social media.

A challenging subject matter, The Girl Who Fell was overall found by critics to be stimulating and touching, but with one or two plot holes. Great acting noted for Rosie Day, and a script that although nimble in dialogue, was also criticised for being slightly overloaded but sensitively written.

The Girl Who Fell is booking until 23 November 2019 at Trafalgar Studio Two, London.

The Girl Who Fell tickets are available now.

The Girl Who Fell reviews

The Stage

"Well acted and sensitively written, if overloaded exploration of grief and guilt"

"Sarah Rutherford’s exploration of the aftermath of a teenage suicide boasts impressively nimble dialogue."

"There are more narrative twists than are necessary – all the new things we learn about these characters begin to feel slightly silly."

"Lurching through a mothers grief "

"The lurches from idea to idea that stop The Girl Who Fell from being wholly convincing also keep it surprising, stimulating and touching. Hannah Price’s deftly acted production is blessed above all by a superb central turn from Claire Goose as Thea, the divorced chaplain who fears she is responsible for the suicide of her 15-year-old daughter, Sam."

"Rosie Day - an actor with clearly a lot of talent"

"The narrative...even though it tactfully deals with a sensitive subject matter, the different turns it takes reveals quite a few plot holes."

"Rosie Day - an actor with clearly a lot of talent...does her best with a potentially flawed text"

"So much gets opened up for discussion - without a proper interrogation - so you leave feeling a tad unfulfilled and underwhelmed."
