Review for Bristol Old Vic Theatre School's MA (INTERNATIONAL) GRADUATING ACTORS LONDON SHOWCASE

Chosen as the "Expert's Choice" by The Stage (London). Read the full review here.

"As the number resolves, Jessica Giannone stumbles off a chair and begins her monologue from Leslye Headland's Assistance. As Jenny, Giannone makes a convincing drunk, pitching the comedy slurring at just the right level. At first glance, this piece is all about broad humour, but there are self-esteem issues present, which the actor astutely employs to give the scene greater depth. In Neil LaBute's Reasons to Be Pretty, we see a nice contrast with Giannone, this time joined by Anthony Winters for a battle of wills, played out in a lover's tiff...Giannone negotiates the argument with a gentle insistence creating an immediacy to the dialogue that does credit to both performers." -Paul Vale, THE STAGE
