I am an experienced actress often cast in strong female roles and I have a flair for comedy. I’ve just filmed with BBC NI on Hope Street Season 2, as a guest role in Episode 2, which will be out at the end of 2022. Also on screen I’ve played a stern lie detector operator, an inept Doctor, a frumpy housewife and a nosy neighbour. I’ve enjoyed classical roles such as Gertrude in Hamlet and Lady Felicity in Noel Coward’s Relative Values as well as regular outings as the Villain in traditional Pantomimes.

Star of the show is Brigid Lohrey as the matriarchal Countess. She and her sidekick, the fey Peter (Simon Money) make a great double act: Her almost Victoria Wood-like musings contrast wonderfully with her physical, highly expressive comedy.”Relative Values Review – Newshopper

“Gremio (Brigid Lohrey) who is master of facial and bodily comedy, enacting so many contortions as to leave the audience in stitches. She evokes the visceral humor of the kind seen in The Good Life’s Margo Leadbetter or Keeping Up Appearances’ Hyacinth Bouquet. ”The Taming of the Shrew Review upcoming.com
“The actress’s lethal, crystalline tones give her a politician’s edge in quickfire passages, though she becomes mesmerising in her softer, confessional speeches, holding audience interest with an emotionally-charged stillness.”Dangerous Corner Review – The Fringe Report
