REVIEWS

Who Do We Think We Are?

Visible Ensemble (Southwark Playhouse) “Visible, a company of older actors of defiant talent who offer something far livelier than mere survival.” (Observer)

“This is an ensemble work in which every performance is magnificent and as a whole a wonderful accomplishment. Don’t miss it.” (British Theatre Guide)


Naked, Live… and Never Again

Tread (Pleasance Dome) “Andrew Hawkins (son of veteran British Actor Jack) gives a terrific performance in this witty monologue.” (The List)

“A really fine actor… Beautifully scripted… witty.” (What’s on Stage, Michael Coveney)

“In the hands of a very skilled performer… Relax, enjoy and be stimulated.” (Broadway Baby).

I Have Before Me a Remarkable Document Written by a Young Lady from Rwanda

Simon (Finborough Theatre 2003—Time Out Critics Choice) "Hawkins is superb as the initially self-absorbed and whiny member of the literati struck by the banality of life, who encourages Juliette to turn her dry manuscript into something..." (Time Out)
"As Juliette and Simon Doreene Blackstock and Andrew Hawkins are excellent." (The Guardian)

"Buy, beg or steal a ticket… the acting was superb…” (The Times)

The Recruiting Officer

Justice Balance (Lichfield Garrick 2003) “There are excellent performances from Corin Redgrave…Penny Layden as the sexually wilful Sylvia, Andrew Hawkins as power-conscious father…” (The Guardian)   “Andrew Hawkins is strong as a sad Johnson lookalike.” (The Observer)

A Wedding Story

Peter (Soho Theatre, Birmingham Rep, and Tour 2000-1)

"What is not in doubt is the excellence of the acting, that of the two principals above all. Kika Markham gives a prize-deserving performance as Evelyn... and although he has the quieter part, Andrew Hawkins as Peter proves fully her equal." (The Sunday Telegraph)

"Kika Markham is heartbreaking... superbly partnered by Andrew Hawkins as her husband lost in medieval romance literature." (Daily Mail)

"A brilliant cast of five... Andrew Hawkins as the loving bewildered father, aging like his own film-star father Jack into what Hawkins did best on screen, grace under pressure." (The Spectator)

Time and the Conways

Alan (the Old Vic, UK Tour and Canada)

"Not that the mighty Plowright has it all her own way. She is given formidable competition...from Andrew Hawkins as her son Alan, 'a shabby little clerk no one would look at twice.'" (Sunday Express)

"Of the Conway children Andrew Hawkins as Alan, the family worm that refuses to turn, is simply outstanding. In a performance of integrity, truth and depth, he invests his character with a dignity that commands respect and affection. He makes acquiescence seem a far more attractive option than ambition." (The Guardian)

"...a performance of note is Andrew Hawkins, who brings a subtle sympathy to the role of Alan..." (Daily Mail)

"The best two at the Old Vic are Madge, played by Julia Swift and Alan, the amiable son without ambition, played by Andrew Hawkins." (Financial Times)

The Cenci

Count Orsino (The Lyric Hammersmith 1994) "Andrew Hawkins, sounding the play's few light notes, is an ironic post-Enlightenment Machiavel, almost winning in his disingenuous vow to do as little mischief as he can." (Time Out)

"Highlights are Andrew Hawkins as a limber prelate..." (Financial Times)  " Andrew Hawkins [is] powerful in revenge..." Spectator
