My blog has quite a lot of posts about Samuel West (Julius Caesar, On Chesil Beach and Darkest Hour) and Charles Edwards (My Fair Lady Australian tour and Henry IX).

Hayley Atwell - Theatre - A View From the Bridge

[updated 18 March 2011]


The Guardian
"...Hayley Atwell captures well the niece's growth into a woman of spirit..."

This is London
"...The impassioned distress of Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio’s wife and Atwell’s agonised embarrassment runs counter to Stott’s fury and gives the evening its shocking, emotional dynamic.."

Daily Mail
(review by Quentin Letts) "...Lindsay Posner draws a strong ensemble performance from his cast..."

(from Baz Bamigboye's column) "...[Catherine is] beautifully captured by Ms Atwell..."

British Theatre Guide
"...Catherine is played by Brideshead Revisited star, Hayley Atwell, who made such an impression opposite Simon Russell Beale as Major Barbara and proves that it was not just a one-off... [Ken Stott] gets great support from both of the leading ladies, Hayley Atwell's bemusement and then anger almost mirroring the reactions of Miss Mastrantonio as the older, wiser Aunt..."

Morning Star Online
"...when the tragedy is as good as A View From The Bridge and the acting is as good as it is here, the impact is quite extraordinary...Ken Stott is terrific and he gets excellent support from Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio as his wife, Hayley Atwell as the niece, Harry Lloyd as the lover and Allan Corduner as the lawyer who acts as chorus..."
