Reviews

“Rivera the critic (Margot Fenley)…was objective, elegant, well dressed, sharp, sensual, sexually perhaps a risk taker, had great poise and of course, was right all along. Spot on.”

Scenes From an Execution. Written by Howard Barker. Directed by Kim Durban. State Theatre Company of South Australia.

dB Magazine (2002)

“…Fenley’s performance is potent and heart-breaking. She embodies love and loyalty…[she is] the female Loman, the other victim, endlessly carting baskets of washing on the long road to sorrow.”

Death of a Salesman, by Arthur Miller. Directed by Rosalba Clemente. State Theatre Company of SA.

The Advertiser, August 8th, 2004

“…Margot Fenley was a revelation to me as Lady M. She commanded the stage and her castle with fierce loyalty and fragile and complex ambition…”

Macbeth: by William Shakespeare Directed by Christopher Hurrell. Darlinghurst Theatre Company, Sydney.

SMH online, May 5, 2010

“…Fenley’s portrayal of Ellen, who attempts to keep herself together as she tries to fully understand what has happened …is raw and authentic. “

Distance: written by Daniel Nellor. Directed by Chris Thompson. La Mama Theatre, Melbourne.

Theatre Press June 16, 2013

“Margot Fenley, perfectly cast in the role, offers a deliciously feisty Desdemona, an Amazon who wishes she were free to be like her warrior husband Othello…”

Goodnight Desdemona (Good Morning Juliet) Written by Ann-Marie MacDonald. Directed by Kim Durban. State Theatre Company of SA.

Rip It Up Dot Com Dot AU (2004)

“Margot Fenley is particularly good as Talbot’s wife, Eve. Her portrayal of a confident woman scouring her life for purpose while disbelieving her husband’s accounts of bashings and interrogations is absorbing.”

Myth, Propaganda and Disaster in Nazi Germany and Contemporary America. Written by Stephen Sewell. Directed by Christopher Hurrell. Tangent Productions at the Stables Theatre, Sydney

Sydney Morning Herald, 2003

“Fenley’s Goody Proctor begins hurt and vulnerable and gathers strength and wisdom. Her scenes were overtly deliciously tense yet underpinned by a strong love. My heart was jumping as I knew Elizabeth would unwittingly betray her husband.”

The Crucible, by Arthur Miller. Directed by Rosalba Clemente. State Theatre Company of South Australia

db Online, 2002

“Stand-out performance…that stays with me is Margot Fenley as Willy’s long-suffering spouse, Linda…a fine study in compassion, blind acceptance, intense grief – and love. She stands by her man with a power and earthy honesty that holds the audience breathless, elevating Miller’s devastating dialogue to a poem for the common man.”

Death of a Salesman. Written by Arthur Miller. Directed by Rosalba Clemente. State Theatre Company of South Australia.
