PROJECTS: The Girl Who  


Claire McKenzie


Book & Lyrics

Scott Gilmour

The Girl Who is the world’s first multi-path musical. Following the story of Anna; a young girl on a journey to find her missing parents, The Girl Who demonstrates a unique, theatrical experience that places it’s audience in charge of the story. Inspired by the popular “Choose Your Own Adventure” books, the audience are given control of the characters decisions, morals, successes and failures. These choices not only affect the path Anna travels down but also how she does so. Entire worlds, scenarios, characters and songs may be unlocked, or missed, depending on what the audience decides; allowing every show to be completely unique. This is the first piece to place the audience in complete control throughout and to leave them with the question; “what if I’d chosen differently?”  


The Girl Who was produced by the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, TheatreBench and Noisemaker and played at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2014 in the Spiegeltent, Assembly Gardens. The Girl Who is currently in development and is being presented at the Infinity Repetory Theatre, New York in June 2015. 



" a fast-paced, romping yarn. Roll the dice, take a chance and see which show unfolds"

The Herald


" it's almost like living in a fairy-tale for an hour that, no matter your age, you just can't help but be captivated by"

Broadway Baby


"The Girl Who YOU MUST GO SEE, although less subtle than the title is a very truthful statement"

British Theatre Guide


"A great idea, brilliantly executed: don't miss it!"



"Just like all the best fairy tales this show is a blend of light and dark; joy and fear"


"A wonderful piece of innovative interactive theatre with delightful storytelling"



" The Girl Who is at various turns insanely infectious fun, and at other times, filled with moments of aching beauty"

Fringe Review


"A bravely sad ending packs a real punch...we don't always know what's going to be momentous in life; there is a grown-up conclusion here to the show title's unfinished sentence."
