    About me

    'Avita Jay's lovelorn Kangna gives maximum value both in the acting and singing stakes.' - Traffic Light Theatregoer

    'Avita Jay stands out from the four-person cast in her warm portrayal of Sophia’s eldest sister Bamba, who has the innate empathy that Sophia initially lacks but whose paranoia, especially when she returns to India, cripples her. Jay also shows impressive range in smaller flashback moments as Sophia’s mother and grandmother as well as an insensitive English aristocrat.' - Review of 'Princess Suffragette' - A Younger Theatre

    'A strong supporting cast provide him with some necessary perspective, amongst them a powerfully charismatic Avita Jay. Though not introduced until the second act, she brings energy and a naturalistic ease to a show that can sometimes feel dense with dialogue.' - Review of 'Punjabi Boy' - The Stage

    Avita Jay’s Kulli, a modern Punjabi girl provided a feisty, confident performance and the scene where she ditched Gary was one of the few where the play really seemed to come alive - Review of 'Punjabi Boy' - Plays to See

    'My personal favourite was Avita Jay who turns in an excellent performance as “good guy” “Dr Chuff”' - Review of 'Rapunzel' - London Theatre 1

    '... their grounded court medic, Dr Chuff (Avita Jay), is a welcome voice of reason' - Review of 'Rapunzel' - Time Out

    'Avita Jay makes for a very likeable Dr Chuff' - Review of 'Rapunzel' - A Younger Theatre

    '... Avita Jay as Dr Chuff, the loyal goody who rumbles Cameron’s character long before the King does. She too is excellent value' - Review of 'Rapunzel' - Musical Theatre Review

    '...the ultra-efficient head of Ghara One Mission Control Shari Dasgupta - a stand-out performance by Avita Jay'

    Review of 'Pioneer' - The Argus

    'Jay shone in this role and her performance trod the fine balance of being both subtle and engaging. She captured the angst of a young woman working out how to make her mark on the world.'

    Review of 'You Take the 321' - The Telegraph and Argus

    'The liveliness of Avita Jay as the unfettered Joy inevitably becomes the focus of audience attention, movingly subdued as she also becomes conforming, then increasingly uncomprehending—a fine performance with much more implied than explicit in the text.'

    Review of 'Unsung' - BRITISH THEATRE GUIDE

    'Avita Jay is excellent as the sprightly Joy, full of life and self-confident.'

    Review of 'Unsung' - UK THEATRE NET

    'Avita Jay as Beth has the best lines in the play, both by Shakespeare and by Rex, and does them full justice.'

    Review of 'The Tragicomedy of Mac-Beth' - VARSITY
