About me:

Eva recently appeared in Tony Cownie's EDINBURGH CHRISTMAS CAROL at the Royal Lyceum Theatre. REVIEWS: "Touchingly stalwart" (The Herald), "heatbreakingly believable" (The Scotsman on DIVIDED), "A touching Henrietta and sympathetic though bereaved Isabella" (SGArts on IVOR PUNCH), "Memorable moments, particularly Ophelia’s grief-induced slide into hysteria depicted with unnerving playfulness by Eva Traynor" (British Theatre Guide on HAMLET), "The performances - particularly Eva Traynor as Mog - are spot on" (Lyn Gardner for The Guardian on FISHSKIN TROUSERS).
