Reviews for Olly Mott in Crooked Dances

brilliantly played by Olly Mott.

One thing that cannot be faulted is the acting, which is very strong throughout, especially Olly Mott as the overly-gauche and clumsy photographer. 

All four performances are excellent.. .Olly Mott gets the comic relief right and looks magnificently uncomfortable in polyester.

Director Elizabeth Freestone marshals her forces admirably, while the players – Jeany Spark, Olly Mott, Ruth Lass and Ben Onwukwe – work superbly as a team,

charmingly shallow photographer, Nick (Olly Mott).

the four actors – Jeany Spark, Olly Mott, Ruth Lass and Ben Onwukwe – actually all splendid.

Olly Mott and Jeany Spark have a delightful vivaciousness about them.

Crooked Dances

Oliver will be performing in Crooked Dances at the RSC 20 June – 13 July
