Initial Twitter reactions to No Man's Land and Damien's performance are really positive!

It's really nice to see such positive vibes so far!
Will be interesting to see what the reviews are after press night. It's also just pleasing to see people crediting and recognizing Damien now and not just a complete list of people saying how great it was and only talking about Ian and Sir Pat.

Really looking forward to seeing this tomorrow night and as an added bonus I have received an email today to let me know that there will be a post show talk after. I'll report back later this week with the details.

A No Man's Land review from Leeds Book Club. Great read! (there may be spoilers!)

No Man’s Land at Sheffield Lyceum

 

Owen Teale and Damien Molony in their supporting roles of Briggs and Foster were equally impressive. Their motives – heck, even their relationship with Hirst – is never really clearly delineated and each appears to regard Spooner as a nuisance and a threat. Their presence alone ups the tension levels, as well as introducing a physicality previously lacking. For the first time, there is an undercurrent of violence – it directly ties into Hirst and Spooner’s history, but is separate from it. Really odd, but quite powerful. That the actors managed to apply such nuance to their characters (a few of us speculated about their characters backstories, friendship, protectiveness and so on for some time after the curtains closed!) in such a short span speaks to their respective skills. Irritatingly, I was well into the second half before I recognised Molony from Being Human and Ripper Street – he is transformed in this.

That is a great review of Damien and Owen's parts in the play. The last sentence just shows what a fantastic actor Damien is.

I'm not in the least surprised that the reaction so far has been so overwhelmingly positive.....but I have to say that I'm really pleased by how much Damien has been mentioned in the comments I've seen so far - considering the company he's in I did wonder if he might be completely overlooked! 

Love that review by Leed Book Club.....but slightly amused by the comment: "Irritatingly, I was well into the second half before I recognised Molony from Being Human and Ripper Street – he is transformed in this."  Firstly I'm not sure why that should be irritating....but also - transformed from what?  I always thought Hal and Albert were very different characters! 

Also saw a comment somewhere about Damien's chameleon-like qualities..... Can't wait to see this - 3 weeks today!!

Delighted Damien is being recognised as the great actor he is at last.

As for not recognising him as Hal in Being Human or Albert in Ripper Street - that's because he acts the part and not just himself! He's so good in everything he does because every character is so different, he just seems to immerse himself in the role.
