    Testimonials:

    The role of Mary requires a complex and often counterintuitive mix of transparency and subterfuge, both towards other characters and the audience as a whole. This is a massive challenge in performance and one which Vic surpassed. She approached the role of Mary with such quiet intelligence and emotional deftness that her performance held a warmth and responsiveness which gripped the entire stage. Her intensity and commitment to the darker moments of the play, and our creative collaboration, enabled us to scale new heights in terms of unsettling and challenging our audience - which I strongly feel could not have been achieved without her input.

    In the rehearsal room, Vic is a joy to work with - taking direction willingly, executing it accurately and always lifting the focus and positivity of the company. I would love to work with her again.

    Kathryn Hanke

    Director

    Terminal Theatre Tour

    )ct 2013

    Victoria is a skilled and committed actress who gave 110% to her role as Mary in a touring production of Terminal. She is an asset to any company and offers an immeasurable level of on and offstage support to fellow company members. She is a positive, hard working and talented actress who I would not hesitate to employ in the future.

    Gemma Head

    Artistic Director

    Whiteface Theatre

    "Victoria exceeded our hopes in her approach to Christine, her performance gave a complexity and motivation not commonly seen,her presence was felt even when she was not on stage. In rehearsal and production, Victoria has been a complete pleasure to work with, energetic,creative,collaborative and infectiously positive throughout. She has been an asset to the production and we would work with her again without question." Andy Curry Director "Miss Julie" theatre tour Hedgepig Theatre

    "Victoria's professional preparation was rightly rewarded in performance. Her portrayal of Christine was superb. I heard so many gushing comments from the audience about her performance and she won some excellent remarks from the reviewing press. I cannot praise her highly enough for her acting and overall contribution to this production." Bill Laughey AD Miss Julie Theatre Tour

    "Delaney did well to convert the thankless role of Christine into an involving and moving character- four stars." - Theatre Critic Nouse Newspaper

    "Victoria played the house cook with quiet dignity and really brought her character to life, and you felt sympathy for her as her ordered world began to crumble."- Julia Pattison Theatre Critic Pocklington Post

    "Delaney's Christine was also a fascinating character: soft and caring yet,via circumstance and belief, hardened and accepting: traits Delaney portrayed through her subtleness of movements, her calmness of speech. Her presence is one that remains throughout-the watchful eye on other people's sin:much like the God she devotes herself to." Vicky Parry-One and Other Press Critic-Miss Julie-Hedgepig Theatre

    "Delaney's Christine is the seemingly quiet counter,yet she makes the cook deceptively calculating in her motives." Charles Hutchinson- York Press Theatre Critic- "Miss Julie"- Hedgepig Theatre Tour 15th Jan-7th Feb 2013

    "Victoria is a delight to work with. Having engaged completely both intellectually and emotionally with the rehearsal process, she showed great commitment throughout the production. Her performance as Emilia had integrity and truthfulness at its core in a characterisation that combined strength with vulnerability and compassion lurking underneath a tough yet brittle exterior. I would cast her again without hesitation."

    Mark France- Director of Othello York Theatre Royal 23rd-27th Oct 2012

    "Delaney gave a brilliant performance as Desdemona's companion and servant and despite her earlier disloyalty regarding the handkerchief, her final speech commanded respect from the audience." Othello Press Review Hannah Whyman- URY

    "Victoria Delaney put in a fine performance as Emilia, Iago's wife." Othello Press Review Julia Pattison Pocklington Post

    "Victoria produced a sublimely moving, captivating and truthful performance as Sophie in the short play "Murmur" as part of the York Mystery Plays. She negotiated the abstract and tragic nature of the play with sensitivity and mindfulness throughout. A wonderful portrayal of a tragic character." Rebecca Stafford- Artistic Director York Theatre Royal August 2012

    "Victoria showed the same finesse and dedication to raising the work of other actors as she did to her own performance- a wonderful ensemble actor.

    I was particularly impressed with her flexibility as a performer, responding to the demands of both outdoor and indoor venues without loosing the character's essence." Tom Straszewski Director The Merry Wives of Windsor June 2012

    "Victoria Delaney plays Clara Rushford with a dynamic balance of juvenility,conviction and heartfelt passion." Matt Harper- Director "Person-In-Law" 27-29th Jan 2012

    "Clara Rushford played fearlessly by the wonderful Victoria Delaney" Fight or Apathy Theatre Blogger

    "Delaney's portrayal of Clara almost gives you empathy for what should be a wholly unlikeable character." www.oneandother.com theatre reviews

    "Victoria Delaney is an exciting actress to work with. She is responsive and creative coming up with ideas relevant to her character and working well with others on and off stage.I hope to work with her again." Glenis Burgess Director of Extras performed at Bradford Playhouse May 2009

    "Victoria knows how to play to the camera,how to hold herself back and when to let go.She is always full of energy and brings a plethora of interesting ideas to the table." Paul Trigwell Director of feature film Eve's Demons due to premiere 2012.

    "Victoria was extremely professional and commited at all times during our production,her portrayal of a grieving mother showed she could take on an emotional role and not be phased by the challenge it represented." Jack Johnston and Ross Murray Director and Producer of "We are the Night" Scarborough Terrace Productions.

    "Victoria was a delight.She showed remarkable acting ability being able to refocus an audience away from the character's physical disability to invlove them emotionally.She is a joy to work with giving 110 percent to rehersals and performances.She is a rare find in the industry." David Jones Director of "Spike" theatre tour Aug-Oct 2009

    "Not only did Victoria suit the character of Maria, but she gave more to the role that I had imagined, she was brilliant" Conor Ibrahiem Director of Hijaab performed at Bradford Playhouse Dec 2009-Feb 2011

    "You have brought intelligence,sensitivity and emotion to "Babs" and humour and support to us all"

    Glenis Burgess- Director " It Started with a Kiss" performed at Hebden Bridge Little Theatre March 2010

    "Victoria is completely professional in her performance and attitude on set, her acting skills exceeded my expectations and brought the character to life. The performance was entirely convincing and her ideas on set were a great help. When the opportunity arises I will happily work with Victoria again." Joshua Warren Director of "Liliya" Warrior Public
