Storyline

The world is closing in on Greta Driscoll. On the cusp of turning fifteen she can't bear to leave her childhood, it contains all the things that give her comfort in this incomprehensible new world. She floats in a bubble of loserdom with her only friend Elliott, until her parents throw her a surprise 15th birthday party and she's flung into a parallel place; a world that's weirdly erotic, a little bit violent and thoroughly ludicrous - only there can she find herself. Based on the critically acclaimed production by Windmill Theatre, GIRL ASLEEP is a journey into the absurd, scary and beautiful heart of the teenage mind.

Steaming Heap!!
2 November 2016 | by See all my reviews

This is much more than a review. It's a Public Service Announcement: Save not only your hard earned money, but much more important your valuable time and completely and totally ignore the ridiculously absurd 7.0 IMDb rating (1 decimal point too far to the right) and any and all of the glowing ratings/reviews (shills all) given this pathetically tedious, audio-visual root canal.

I get the simple and waaayyyy over-told story it's trying to tell, but the clumsy, amateurish Alice-In-Wonderland/Wizard-Of-Oz manner it uses to tell it - to include the acting, the dialog, the casting, the directing, the EVERY-THING - is so incredibly, and stupefyingly UN- entertaining that sitting through it actually rises to the level of . . . cruel and unusual PUNISHMENT!!

Don't be duped. "Girl Asleep" is a "Steaming Heap!"
