Praise for Gerard Humphrey’s ‘NORAH’.
“faultless performance from Juliette Crosbie… and excellent support throughout, particularly from Ian Meehan as the priest and Barbara Dempsey as the… civil servant”
“Remarkable, nuanced and thought-provoking”
“Humphreys does a superb job of conjuring up the horror and the tragedy”
– THE SUNDAY INDEPENDENT
“The title character is…played with impressive conviction by Juliette Crosbie”
“Passionate…timely reminder of the Troubles”
– THE SUNDAY BUSINESS POST
Crosbie embodies the fire and integrity of Anigone, as she beautifully brings to life the spirit and the suffering of the women of the Troubles”
“Norah is successful in striking a theatrical balance between the mythical and the real”
Praise for ‘The Shaughraun’
“…turning in a memorable performance. As does a hugely impressive Juliette Crosbie as the spirited Claire who falls in love with, of all people, an outsider. With her penetrating eyes and mocking half smile, one suspects the camera would love Crosbie as she channels the red headed feistiness of a Mary Kate Danaher. The stage most certainly does. As it does the consistently excellent David Fennelly as the posturing, perplexed, yet principled English Officer Molineux, deeply endearing and desperately in love with his red headed Irish cailín. Indeed, Crosbie and Fennelly exude such natural ease and chemistry, reminiscent of the greats of the screwball, romantic comedy, they’re simply a joy to watch, whether trying to resist the irresistible, or turning butter churning into a delightful innuendo.”
– Chris O’Rourke, The Arts Review
“Juliette Crosbie also impresses with her vocal performance. She is a well-known jazz singer in Dublin and is the strongest vocally of the cast.”
