Lockdown – The New Theatre
“O’Farrell is played by Amy O’Dwyer, and having seen her in a number of plays, she has an ability to sink into the role, becoming it in a way that makes her look different, even physically different. Here she holds herself well in the first few seconds. No one could be convinced otherwise that this is not a soldier, a Captain.”
Madame de Markievicz on Trial – The New Theatre
Amy O’Dwyer in particular should be commended for creating two extremely different characters despite the restrictive setting of the witness box which prevents huge physicality.
The Last Five Years – Project Arts Centre
The energy is consistent and O’ Dwyer’s vocal control is especially impressive.
