2015Kathryn O’Reilly is memorably intense as the sour Liz Morden, who rigidly resists authority.
Henry Hitchings
standard.co.uk
2015the emotional blossoming of Kathryn O’Reilly’s hard-nosed Liz Morden is poignant and painful.
ANDRZEJ LUKOWSKI

2015Kathryn O’Reilly gives a brilliantly sparky and furious performance as one of the most disaffected prisoners, Liz Morden, who faces the gallows.
Charles Spencer

2015Kathryn O’Reilly exquisite as thief Liz Morden
David Guest
wscountytimes.co.uk
2015Kathryn O’Reilly was phenomenal in her role as Liz Morden. She played the desperate and hardened convict with such conviction that her transformation to a beautiful rich aristocrat (as per her role in the play-within-the-play) was powerful.
Lindsay Swanson

2015Kathryn O'Reilly is terrific - at first terrifying, but gradually morphing into the moral centre of the play
Kris Hallett
whatsonstage.com
2015The two actors, Kathryn O’Reilly and Stephen Myott-Meadows, deliver these turn-arounds with admirable restraint; there are shifts in accents and bearing, but their various characters are united by far more than divides them.
Richard Stamp
brighton.fringeguru.com
2015Kathryn O’Reilly and Stephen Myott-Meadows bring to life all the characters involved. This they do superbly through voice changes, subtle facial changes and body postures. Their underplaying protects the fragility of the writing.
Barrie Jerram
theargus.co.uk
2015Kathryn O’Reilly brilliantly takes on male roles that include a very drunk and recently dumped boyfriend, ‘the boy’ with toothache and a pilot who is too old for his girlfriend.

2015Kathryn O'Reilly prizeworthy performance as Liz Morden
Basil Considine
tcdailyplanet.net
2015Kathryn O'Reilly is hugely impressive as the flinty thief who ultimately saves her neck by discovering her voice
Michael Billington
theguardian.com
2015"There’s then an endless role-call of small-yet-satisfying appearances, with Kathryn O’Reilly’s bed bound Suzanne treating us to a wonderful maternal maturity."
