REGIONAL THEATRE, PHILADELPHIA
INIS NUA THEATRE COMPANY, AMERICAN PREMIERE, 2016
Playwright: Clara Brennan; Director: Claire Moyer
This production is the recipient of three 2016 Barrymore Award nominations:
Outstanding Leading Actress in a Play
Outstanding Direction of a Play
Outstanding Overall Production of a Play
"Emily R. Johnson gives a break-out performance as Amy, a troubled foul-mouthed teenager from West London... She is brimming with emotion, sparkling with wit, and wracked with vulnerability as she commands the stage and captivates the audience with the fluid naturalism of her every word and movement."
- Deb Miller, Phindie
"Johnson’s performance is absorbing. Her manner is punkish but not off-putting; her jaw is clenched tight, but there’s a softness to her expressions and a sensitivity to her tone that will draw you in... A raw, unaffected performance that’s sure to rank among the year’s best."
- Tim Dunleavy, DC Metro Theater Arts
SIMPATICO THEATRE COMPANY, A NEW PLAY NETWORK ROLLING WORLD PREMIERE, 2018
Playwright: Caridad Svich, Director: Sam Tower
"Under Tower’s direction, the three young performers who play the speaker work seamlessly together, creating a kind of syncopated harmony with enough texture to hold interest... Emily R. Johnson speaks poetry so naturally it feels like her own conversation, and it helps ground and specify the character."
- Cara Blouin, Broad Street Review
