I loved working with Siobhan, she always delivers. I would have no hesitation in working with her again on much bigger projects, I totally believe in her talent, drive and professionalism. I recommend this uncanny young woman with her vivacious screen presence to anyone seeking out the most interesting emerging talent in the country.

"He arrives with Agnes (Siobhan Connors in a stellar performance), who’s a little brittle and mercurial and, as we find out, with good cause. But it’s Agnes, really, who is at the centre of things – that is, it’s her journey through the play that carries the most weight – comic and sad. It’s a delicious performance.”
