    Additional Information

    Awards: Best Supporting Actress (ISDA,2005)

    Nominations: Best Actress (Limerick Fringe Festival 2011)

    "Maeve Leahy, who played the besotted actress Sybil Vane, among others, was simply superb. It was hard to even imagine it was the same woman playing the parts." Review of The Portrait of Dorian Gray, What Where When, (March 2010) and quoted in "iomtoday.co.im" (18 March 2010)

    "Particularly strong performances came through from the twin slaves - the two Dromios - played by Monique K Squeri and Maeve Leahy. Their physical synchronisation and facial expressions were a joy to watch. / Leahy must also be mentioned for her musical performances in addition to fine acting." Review of A Comedy of Errors, The Stage (29th September 2008)

    "Maeve is one of the most versatile performers I have had the privilege to work with, as well as an irrepressible font of both kindness and mirth. Her quiet and considered approach to her work is exemplary in a a profession where heads tend to spin and tempers flare at the slightest hiccough. Her demeanour also belies the power within such a wee bundle.

    Need a pitch-perfect belter of an angelic singer, a crazy will-try-anything mover, a powerhouse of meaning with text? Maeve's your woman, for sure. I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending her for your next show or project." October 2012, Eric Tessier Levigne, Co Artistic Director, Choreographer and Principal Performer at TNT Theatre Britain.

    "I had the pleasure to work with Maeve on a project at Arch 468 in 2010. She was exemplary in her dedication, creativity and collaboration. Like many projects, our resources, including time, were short; Maeve excelled in this environment. She brings the right combination of experience, curiosity, imagination and commitment to her work, and delivered a great performance. She worked very well with the other collaborators, was a joy to work with and I would not hesitate to employ her again. If anyone has any questions about Maeve, or this recommendation, I hope they will not hesitate to contact me."

    July 2012 Mark Swetz, Co-Director Compañía y
