REVIEWS:

CARNS THEATRE PASSION - 5 stars (Gazing at a Distant Star)
The reveal of Karen's story, when it comes, is sudden and brutal, and then the superb Porter kicks up a gear in intensity. It is Karen, and Porter’s stunning playing of her, that dominates the closing third of the play. Quiet and understated, never overplayed, she gives a performance of white-hot fury. With every hand turned against her, she stands alone, unbroken and unashamed, devastated by guilt and regret, but never, for a moment, wavering in her utter, complete and unconditional loyalty to her son. She is a worthy standard-bearer for mothers of lost sons everywhere.

LONDON THEATRE1 - 4 stars (Gazing at a Distant Star)
The play started slowly as each character took his or her time to tell their interpretation of a story. This time given to each character developed and built a relationship with the audience. We were near to tears watching Victoria Porter’s performance as Karen. A mother confused and hurt by the disappearance of her son, Porter trembles as she screams in anger and shrinks in shame.

GREENWICH VISITOR (Gazing at a Distant Star)
Porter was magnificent.... Rowland's play is full of real humanity, balancing the despair of the protagonists with clever and witty observations about life... A claustrophobically intimate piece.

LONDON PUB THEATRES (14 July 2016) - 5 stars (Life Sentence)
The best piece of drama I have seen this year. Victoria Porter is perfectly cast ... a performance of startling intensity and grace from Porter, eschewing empty histrionics; understated, observational drama at its very best.... Every breath, every twitch of the superb Porter is imbued with humanity and humour. ...delivers a political message like a punch in the gut.

CARNS THEATRE PASSION - 4 stars (Life Sentence)
The evening stealer was Life Sentence. This superbly acted piece took you by the guts and wrenched you from your seat.

FEMALE ARTS - 4 stars (Life Sentence)
The high point of the evening. Porter's performance totally sells the play.

LONDON THEATRE1 - 4 stars (Life Sentence)
The most poignant play of the night.

REMOTE GOAT - 5 stars (The Duchess of Padua)
The lady herself is played by Victoria Porter, a powerful performer whose meekness at the beginning is contrasted with her passion in the latter part of the show.

HAM AND HIGH - 4 stars (The Duchess of Padua)
Victoria Porter is a powerful, intelligent actress. Constantly derided and humiliated by her brutal husband, she falls for a man who respects and adores her. Their doomed affair is both touching and human.
