    Additional Information

    Recent reviews for Victoria Strachan:

    In 'Progress'

    'Victoria Strachan handles the complex role of Ronee capably. Firm and forthright, but at the same time vulnerable and confused, Strachan makes the frequently prickly Ronee sympathetic, eventually displaying the tidal wave of emotions concealed behind the self-assured image she projects' Catherine Usher , The Stage

    www.thestage.co.uk/reviews/review.php/27034/progress

    In 'Always So Free':

    '...A fine performance from Victoria Strachan' Jeremy Kingston, The Times

    In 'Foundation Stone':

    'a sultry performance as Madeline Caldwell ' - Nottingham Evening Post

    For 'Boston Marriage' :

    'Her work with Catherine was a master-class in comic timing, presence and delivery : delightful'

    Chris Bearne, Remotegoat

    'Victoria Strachan was superbly funny' Jeremy Kwan, whatsonstage.com
