Kate Kennedy produces a towering performance as Olivia in all regards.

Alfred Hickling
The Guardian on Twelfth Night

Kennedy's ability to inhabit a vast array of completely distinct characters is awe-inspiring

Nominated for best supporting actress Manchester Theatre Awards for Twelfth Night.

best of all is newcomer Kate Kennedy who steals the show many times over as Helena. Such a breathtaking debut we cannot recall, Kennedy has an exquisite gift for comedy and we can’t wait to see what she does next

Cameron K McEwan
Metro on A Midsummer Night's Dream

Kennedy, who has a touch of the young Natasha Richardson about her, is striking and watchable
