for “Twenty Minutes from Nowhere
@ Bewley’s Cafe Theatre, November 2021

“A fascinating rumination on suppressed sexuality in a modern rural setting; …an absorbing monologue performed impressively by Eoin O’Sullivan”
“persuasively reminds us that rural life has songs that still need singing”
– Sara Keating, Sunday Business Post

“a heartbreaking portrayal of a courageous descent… Kelly’s piece, aided immeasurably by Eoin O’Sullivan’s tragically restrained playing, gives the audience a lifetime of emotional deprivation and isolation in 45 minutes”
– Emer O’Kelly, Sunday Independent

“By turn fragile, resilient and determined, O’Sullivan’s performance captivates the audience. His nuanced performance captures both the frustration and the tenacity of someone caught between the conflicting needs of a young man for a meaningful relationship and a feeling of obligation to support his parents.’
– Pat Viale, No More Workhorse

“Eoin O’Sullivan’s Mitch is totally believable as the former student basketballer, now a sports journalist, an ambitious go-getter in the media world but still connected to deeper values and aware of his failings. It is a finely detailed performance, unfailingly hitting the right emotional notes.”
Paddy McGovern, No More Workhorse – for “Tuesdays with Morrie”

“O’Sullivan is a fantastic everyman in this piece; his expressions, timing, physicality, and frantic energy bring so much comedy to the show and he is truly delightful to watch.”
Emma Devlin, The Reviews Hub – for “Columbia March”

“Eoin O’Sullivan proves marvellous as the bitterly twisted Diarmud, who makes his daily irritations at the world feel uncomfortably recognisable.”
Chris O’Rourke, The Arts Review – for “Intercession: Brighton Court”

“Martina McCormack and Eoin O’Sullivan deliver stellar performances as this dysfunctional duo. McCormack is sharp and menacing, while O’Sullivan’s performance is absolutely heartbreaking at times.”
Julie Renata, London Theatre Reviews – for “Pheromone”

“O’Sullivan really immerses himself in the role, successfully capturing the child-like innocence. This character is rather out of the ordinary, and O’Sullivan’s characterisation was intriguing.”
Basic Theatre Review – for “Pheromone”

“The show delivers a delightful convergence of history and nostalgia. Eoin O’Sullivan, looking and sounding like the voice of Campbells Soup a la 1938, proves superb, doing so much more by doing so much less.”
Chris O’Rourke, The Arts Review – for “Orson Welles’ Christmas Carol”

“Joe Wright and Eoin O’Sullivan put in superb performances – committed, engaged, giving it their all – bringing tears of laughter. The entire night was “red lemonade” – f*ucking magical”
EverythingTheatre for “Columbia March”
