2019Killen steers clip starring Mary O'Loan. An eerie, surreal video, with a definite Lynchian air. A beautiful, sometimes startling watch.
ROBIN MURRAY

2019A tourdeforce performance...whose chilling patrician beauty sits eerily alongside her heavy rural accent....an empress, then a revolutionary on the barricades.

2018Sive, enjoyably sarcastic in Mary O’Loan’s performance, pays her way through college with sex work.
CHRIS MCCORMACK

2018Cleverly conceived and well acted, as a social experiment it works, and as a story, it’s one worth hearing.

2017The cast are excellent in their portrayals of flawed 20-somethings trying to do the right thing by their friends.

2017O’Connor and her co-stars, Mary O’Loan and Annette O’Shea, are exceptional; the script too, is lively and absorbing

2017Lo’s monologue.. is engrossing & harrowing. O’Loan deserves a shout-out for immersing herself in this difficult, thorny and demon-plagued character.
Lexy Hudson

2017An emotional piece of drama...mitigated by a very strong and raw performance from Mary O’Loan, in the role of Lo.
Greg Stewart

2017Mary O’Loan stands out as sex worker Sive, her tough and practical exterior concealing a wealth of kindness and fragility.

    About me

    Internationally experienced actress with a BA in American Theatre Arts, Rose Bruford.

    Trained in London, Chicago and Northern Ireland.

    Interested in quality work that ignites social change with integrity for a fairer society.

    Toured the UK with AlterEgo Creative Solutions playing 15-year-old Chelsea in Chelsea's Choice. A play on Child Sexual Exploitation throughout (2015-18). Other tours include 'The Friday Night Effect' by Sunday's Child and 'Fridge' Blackout Creative Arts.

    Writer of 'The Fifth Wall'

    The Fifth Wall is an immersive piece of theatre that explores very real and explicit issues such as life after trauma, suicide, sex work, sexuality, exploitation, healing, collective empathy and digs deep into how to strengthen our communities from the ground up in a war against gentrification and isolation of the individual. It does all this through the insights of four complex individuals in their late 20’s, each drilling against the current to make the world a better place in their own unique way; some more controversial than others.

    We use the platform of a lively bar and music venue including drinks service and live acts, the audience physically follow Pod through the venue as he begins his journey through the afterlife post suicide. Catch! He doesn’t know he’s dead yet, how or why. Over the course of the evening he stumbles upon Jacq, ‘Paddy’ and Maeve who have led completely unrelated lives… until now.
