|Actor/Cellist currently working with the No 1 International Billboard Artist/Album - Celtic Thunder. |
AVAILABLE FOR WORK! - June to August 2013
"These actors do not look awkward - Laura Durrant, as both Emilia and Gratiano, holds a cello as if acting with a cello is entirely normal. Apparently she has danced and played cello at the same time for a physical theatre company...Mention must again be made of Durrant - her playing of Emilia, Iago's wife, is fine acting."
The Stage- Kevin Perry.
"Whilst Emilia, powerfully played by Laura Durrant, was enthralling hysterical at the terrible realisation of her mistresses murder, commanding her part movingly and with emotion and tears""Completely enraptured, the audience, along with Othello, did indeed "lay down and roar'."
York Press - Alice Williams
"while Laura Durrant's sympathetic portrayal of Iago's wife, and unwitting accomplice, Emilia was a joy to watch"
Bracknell news- Lucy Crossley
"Also worthy of mention is Laura Durrant, as Iago's wife, Emilia, particularly for a stirring performance in the final act where she denounces her husband and realises his part in the downfall of her beloved mistress."

"Laura Durrant was a strong Emilia and also proved a capable Bianca, standing in for her colleague Loren O'Dair who was rushed off to emergency dental treatment after losing a tooth in what was a literally show-stopping moment."
****The Scotsman -By Neil McEWAN
"music is suddenly offset by Saint-Sa ns glorious Swan towards the tragic end of the play, beautifully played by the incomparable Laura Durrant as Emilia, her own performance a mastery of antithesis in itself since she appears as a silent, longing musician throughout most of the production before erupting into passion towards the end."
"All the actors deserve the highest praise, but my wife and I were struck by the force of Laura Durrant playing Emilia, a part frequently overshadowed by the greater figures in the play, but played with such true feeling on this occasion."
Lawrence Goldman, Oxford University Press (UK).
"The audience of primary school children who were boisterous before the curtain went up fell silent for the two hour show. They were transfixed by a combination of Laura Durrants vibrantly stroppy stage persona as Lila, the likeable charm of Ben Wong as Chulak"
