Notes:

"Amy Dawson revels in the role of vile teenager Izzy..." (Audrey Pointer for The Public Reviews)

"Amy Dawson is horribly believable as the sadistic Izzy, possibly more screwed up than Mia, and not a good advert for boarding school education." (Review by Velda Harris for British Theatre Guide)

"The experience with Izzy, a wonderfully brash Amy Dawson..." (David Dunn for The Star)

"The chief school perpetrator, Izzy, a picture of arrogant self-centredness from Amy Dawson, is the potential successor to the play's increasingly dominant Martha..." (Timothy Ramsden for Reviews Gate)

'The contrasting character of domestic violence victim Ange (Amy Dawson) encapsulates the volatile nature of the story and Dawson displays admirable emotional dexterity'

Catherine Usher (The Stage) 'Progress', Union Theatre 19th Jan - 6th Feb 2010

'For consistency though only Amy Dawson comes through, producing a complex and varied performance as the young wife locked in a circle of violence. Dawson fully embodies the broken body of Ange with a visceral voracity that shocks.' (Elert Gadget) Progress, Union Theatre 19th Jan - 6th Feb 2010.

"Amy Dawson is delightfully fresh as Debbie, Henry's wayward and intelligent daughter..." (The Real Thing at the Tabard Theatre, Chiswick from 28th January - 14th February) Reviewed by Skye Crawford for 'London Fringe'

"Amy Dawson as youngest daughter Joyce is a talent to watch out for. From the moment she stomped on to the stage complaining about the beastly weather she was captivating, giving a truly remarkable performance throughout. She reminds me of a young Juliet Stevenson and was thrilling to watch even in the scenes where she had little to say..."

(I'll Leave it to you at the Pentameters Theatre, Hampstead from 25th August - 12th September) Reviewed by 'Remotegoat': Louise Davies
