Reviews of Play Ground.

Play Ground

Lucy Avery Writes


She was so captivating I time travelled with her.

Effortless, honest and beautifully lyrical...               

Saul Reichlin - Chicago Critic

...a most original collection of beautifully written poetry, and movingly sung songs...

...the combination of performance poetry and torch song at its most captivating...

Reviews of Wonderations.

The Play's The Thing UK

She’s like a life coach, but a gentle one who uses cuddles rather than shouting.

Davies has an immovable strength and presence, but one that overflows with positivity.

Michael Davis - Female Arts

...her singing was nothing less than exemplary...


The Audience Speaks.
Reviews of Testament.

Vocals by Ivy Davies.

Hannah Gosling - Get The Chance ★★★★

Michael Davis - The Play's The Thing
...vocalist Ivy Davies sings a suitably soulful tune...


Testament... ...brought together by the gorgeous voice of Ivy Davies...

A Younger Theatre
The music ties up the stories beautifully and Davies’ voice is mesmerising to listen to.
The Audience Speaks.
Davies possesses a strong, confident voice that soars through the Pit in the Vaults...
Mary Halton - Exeunt Magazine
All three tales are woven together by Ivy Davies’ beautiful bluesy spirituals, 
Charlotte Pegram - The Peg
The form is simple, the concept unusual, and there is the added bonus of hearing the vocalist Ivy Davies who provides soulful acapella numbers as way of transitioning from one monologue to another.
