Here’s a selection of Rachel’s reviews.

THE CARAVAN (THE ROYAL COURT) "Full credit to the five-strong cast, Rachel Dale especially, so versatile and convincing." Whatsonstage

THE CARAVAN (THE ROYAL COURT) "There is particularly fine work from Rachel Dale and Sanchia McCormack, playing a whole range of stoically Blitz-spirited women who managed to carry on regardless." Evening Standard

THE CARAVAN (EDINBURGH FESTIVAL) ★★★★★ "Chameleonic performances which cannot fail to impress upon an audience the human faces of the flood victims, though particularly impressive was Rachel Dale. This production is flawless and fascinating." Evening Standard

ARDEN OF FAVERSHAM "Alice Arden, excellently played by Rachel Dale. Unencumbered by the excesses of period costuming, but still evoking the Elizabethan gentlewoman in her closely-trussed corset, Dale heaves and sighs for her lover, Mosby, whilst plotting like a vixen her husband's demise. Dale's performance adds light and lustre to what all-too-easily could be a two-dimensional caricature." British Theatre Guide

ARDEN OF FAVERSHAM "Dale's Alice was stunning throughout. Always the centre of attention Dale imagined the impressive feat of juggling multiple plots and dynamics simultaneously, manipulating her co-conspirators and victims with equal skill. She found an enthusiasm in the ideas of murder which Dale restrained from boiling over into comic-book evil." The Bardathon

PUB QUIZ IS LIFE(HULL TRUCK THEATRE) "The performances are uniformly delightful. Rachel Dale contends with the larger-than-life role of Baz, a dodgy-dealing Christian, with aplomb." The Telegraph (Dominic Cavendish)

CAN YOU SEE ME YET? ★★★★★ "Standout performances came from Sophie Walton and Rachel Dale who both portrayed young girls in Cassandra's memory and then women who escape the reality of their insanity by behaving like young children. Walton and Dale balance this with precision." Fringe Review

DISPOSABLE PEOPLE "The strongest of storylines revolves around Eastern European teacher Lena who has been forced into prostitution after being trafficked to the UK in search of a better life. Special mention must go to Rachel Dale as the unfortunate Lena, whose pit of despair is almost tangible." Hull Daily Mail

GREAT EXPECTATIONS (NORTHERN STAGE) "Rachel Dale as Biddy, Pip's first romantic interest is particularly good, and brings a yearning and stoicism to the role that particularly holds your attention...attractive, intelligent, charming, witty." UK Theatre Network
