Reviews:

"Louise makes both her characters likeable and sympathetic and at times downright hilarious" - One 4 Review for 'Victim'

"The one actor plays two parts and she does so with aplomb, each character wholly distinct, her very features seeming to shift as her voice, accent and body language alters." - Three Weeks for 'Victim'

"Beresford gives a marathon of a performance on stage alone in the intimate venue with no props but a single chair, the show rests entirely in her capable hands and both characters are absolutely believable, rounded and intriguing" - Young Perspective for 'Victim'

"Louise Beresford in the role of Gonerill is especially captivating in her cold-blooded scheming" - Remote Goat

"Louise Beresford launch into the show with real enthusiasm, immediately winning everyone over" - Broadway Baby

"Lady Macbeth brought the performance alive" - Arts Awards.
