FOR LOVE by Laoisa Sexton

JoKinsella

THE DRILLING COMPANY, 1ST IRISH THEATRE FESTIVAL NYC
“…my pick of the festival. For Love by Laoisa Sexton was tightly constructed, hilariously performed, strongly directed, and brought a fresh take to stories of 30-something friendship and sex” -Gwen Orel, The Irish Examiner
“Cattell’s direction is broadly funny and yet also sensitive. A scene in a nightclub with people dancing to ‘Copacabana’ had the audience hooting.” -Gwen Orel, The Irish Examiner

ASSHOLE by Lisa Kenner Grissom

COLLABORACTION THEATER COMPANY
“…The play that without doubt gets handed the freaking keys is Asshole…”

CSN BACKSTAGE THEATRE
“A ‘Night’ with the ‘British’ makes for Great Theater.”
“…the tension of being locked in with these characters is  great theater, and when you finally do release your  breath at the end, it’s with the sound of a punch to the  gut.”
– Jacob Coakley, Las Vegas Sun

18:1-7 THE CRYPT by James Cattell
18-1-7 Art Installation Canterbury Cathedral

CANTERBURY CATHEDRAL, Mother Church of the worldwide Anglican Communion and seat of the Archbishop of Canterbury
An artistic first at Canterbury Cathedral…invited visitors to consider the familiar in a fresh and, maybe, disturbing way.”
– Rex Cooper, Kent Profile

SNOW WHITE AND THE SEVEN DWARFS by Jo Cattell

THE HORN THEATRE, LAS VEGAS

 – Sarah Steinberg, Las Vegas Comedy Examiner

SKYSCRAPING by Tim Stimpson

SOHO THEATRE STUDIO, London

– Gerald Berkowitz, The Stage

DINGO QUEEN by Jo Cattell

CAMDEN PEOPLE’S THEATRE, London

“If Tarantino had his wicked way with a few episodes of Neighbours, it might result in something along the lines of Dingo Queen. However, he’d really have be thinking from a brutal female mindset at the time to conceive the events that ensue in this shamelessly foul-mouthed and dark-witted production.”
– Julia Glassman,What’s On in London
