Samantha Joyce


REVIEWS for last play June 2009 – Two by Jim CartwrightThis play is named after the number of its cast members which means that enormous skill is required to deliver everything the script demands. Lucky then that Joe Shefer and Samantha Joyce are more than capable.They glide through this densely wordy piece with ease, maintaining both pace and energy, delivering jokes and dolour with equal finesse. Shefer has a beautiful subtlety to his facial expressions which allows him, not only to slip effortlessly from one character to the next, but also to communicate all the layers these characters encompass. Joyce matches Shefer’s skill with an ability to draw the audience in and make them identify intently with the vast emotions she accurately presents.Nonetheless, the reason Shefer and Joyce are so effective on stage is their intuitive sensitivity to the rhythms of the text. They rattle through the staccato meters of the lines like cadences in a percussion symphony; bringing the comedy to the fore with superb timing and then crashing to a halt for dramatic pauses that leave the audience holding their breath with tension.Claudia Morcroft – Fringe ReportSamantha Joyce's most memorable and telling performances are as the woman who loves big men like Hercules "You think they'll never die" but is lumbered with a weakling who takes hours getting at the bar; and as the forlorn mistress who is watching her lover chatting affectionately with his wife.Both these actors have the versatility needed for this play and they work well together.Aline Waites – RemotegoatHas recently played a happy go luck tart Christine in Dark Edge Films pyschological thriller feature film 'In the Dark'. http://www.darkedgefilms.comWebsite: http://www.samanthajoyce.co.uk
