2016Bruin’s...Bracknell [is] more modern...allowing Wilde’s razor-sharp wit to shine more brightly. The “handbag” scene is a neatly underplayed comic gem.

2016Yvette Bruin tackles the imposing figure of Lady Bracknell with panache and comes out on top.
Stage Reviews

2015While the pitching was consistently accurate from all, just a small handful of the thirteen-strong cast grabbed the audience by the ears...a further stand out performance came from Yvette Bruin in 'Getting Married' from Sondheim's 'Company'. The female part consists of an astounding number of words sung in a short space of time which she reeled off perfectly in tune and audibly, all the while entertaining her audience with fantastic comic delivery and, at times, fairly active choreography.

2015Brecht still relevant after seventy years...The final year students played their roles to the full, in both challenging and multiple roles. Bruin caught the eye, relaxed and composed and convincing whenever on stage.

    About me

    Hello,

    Since graduating in 2014 I have been fortunate enough to play such infamous roles as Lady Bracknell and Margaret Thatcher, as well as having the opportunity to experiment with my versatility by multi-roling in a number of plays. I am a versatile performer, with a good understanding of text and strong comic timing.
