The Girl Who Fell In Love With The Moon

This Human Zoo Company production, a sensation at last year’s Edinburgh Fringe and currently touring Britain, is a magical, moving, mirthful and even mystical look at humanity’s obsession with the heavens. I caught it at Greenwich Theatre where a small but noisily appreciative audience was transfixed by the multiple talents of its cast – Florence O’Mahony, Nick Gilbert, Fleur Rooth, Freddie Crossley and Rosalind Hoy – as they told a series of stories ending in terrifically funny cartoonish violence but finishing off with a tale that racked our emotions. And there were some great gags, not least the conceit that we, the audience, were not there. I recommend this unreservedly.
