LUCY IS A THEATRE,
FILM & TELEVISION ACTOR
★★★★★ "an all-enveloping performance that is close to indescribable…. There isn't a more complete and incredible performance currently anywhere in London - utterly mind-blowing, knocking The State Vs John Hayes right out of the park"
Grumpy Gay Critic
★★★★ “Roslyn’s performance is astonishing. She has created a very special, intriguing and disturbing piece of theatre –
it may be only an hour in length but its
impact lasts much longer.”
★★★★★ “Lucy Roslyn, the sole
performer who also wrote the play,
is utterly brilliant – she gives an
flitting between personalities
and genders, Roslyn
commands the audience’s
attention with immense skill”
The Argus (Argus Angel
Award for Artistic Excellence)
★★★★ "Lucy Roslyn’s performance as eponymous chimp [Goody] is among the most astute and well-observed performances I have seen in recent years, seamlessly embodying every aspect of the physicality of a chimpanzee.... once you’re caught up in the story, it becomes easy to forget that Goody is being played by a human at all"
★★★★ "Roslyn is, quite simply, breathtaking. Goody is soulful, funny, ferocious, needy – I have never seen someone be able to communicate so much with so little"
