Young Perspective
Rosa’s performance is funny, sincere, compelling, distraught…she takes the audience with her on her journey, every step of the way.

Three Weeks
Breathtakingly sad and intensely funny
4 stars
Broadway Baby
She gives the audience permission to laugh, her wry humour like helium lifting Madame Ovary up. It rounds the sharp edges created by her illness, bolstered by the support of her family and friends. She lives for the good days and we are alive with her.
4 stars
Miro Magazine
Madame Ovary isn’t an easy journey, but it’s a cathartic, life-affirming, important one.
