    ‎REVIEWS

    Reviews from the play The Inconsistent Whisper of Insanity, written by Ian Moore, 24:7 Manchester Theatre Festival

    "There's an impressive performance from Iona Thonger as the girl who finds herself in the wrong place at the wrong time, and some striking tableaux reminiscent of social realist friezes." The Guardian. Alfred Hickling

    "Within this ensemble performance there are fine individual performances, Iona Thonger is captivating and eminently watchable as the young Milena and Marie Westcott as the Chicken Woman is the moral heart of the story." Buxton Festival Fringe Review. Steve Walker

    "The actors work wonders in what is essentially an ensemble piece, but I particularly liked Iona Thonger, as the younger Melina, and Philip Quinn, as the Lieutenant Colonel." Manchester Evening News. Peter Radcliffe

    The Legend Of The Ghost Shark, 24:7 Festival - New Century House, Manchester. The Public Reviews.

    "The narrator of the legend (a splendidly gothic Iona Thonger) is visible to everyone despite being a figment of Jason's imagination." Dave Cunningham

    Sidmouth Herald Reviews. Charles Vance Productions. Manor Pavilion

    "Impressive Sidmouth debuts come from the two leads: Richard Delaney played the irresolute and dreamy Greggory with real authority and Iona Thonger showed great skill and sensitivity as the self-disciplined, quietly charming Elizabeth. They effectively portrayed the increasingly tense atmosphere, which resulted in bitter quarrelling and accusing each other of Edwaina's death. The excellent diction of the cast augurs well for the season." The Late Edwina Black, William Dinner. Roger Simmonds

    "In contrast Malcolm and Kate were warm, affectionate and entertaining. In great character portrayals, Richard Delaney and Iona Thonger were energetic and exuberant, as with all the playwrights pairings cracks in their relationship did appear, these were believable and the empathetic characterizations meant that the audience hoped for resolution." Bedroom Farce, Alan Aykbourn. Emma Silverthorne, Editor

    "Beautiful Iona Thonger was unrecogniseable and totally convincing as elderly Emmie, the faithfully but easily persuaded servant who, like her mistress, was manipulated by Edward Bare." Murder Mistaken, Janet Green. Roger Simmonds

    "Iona Thonger, Victoria Porter, and Ami Solomons made a tantalising trio of glamorous air hostesses, not only providing a visual treat, but maintaining well drawn distinct characters with authentic accents. Iona radiated charm as irresistible, fun-loving American Janet, with a King size appetite, whose secret ambition was to marry not Bernard, but a millionaire." Boeing, Boeing, Marc Comoletti. Roger Simmonds

    "Iona Thonger won our sympathy as the attractive, fragile, wheel-chair bound Ellen. House On The Cliff, George Batson." Roger Simmonds

    Reading Chronicle Reviews

    "Iona Thonger (Enid) was sensitively vulnerable as the inept thinker but loving mother to the boy - she brought tears to our eyes." Albert Make Us Laugh, Jimmie Chinn. Bron Gonnella

    "Iona Thonger, as his frustrated wife Laura, was played with articulate anger and resentment." The Bad Lad Of Reading Gaol. Bron Gonnella.
