Kill Johnny Glendenning by DC Jackson
Royal Lyceum, Edinburgh & Citizens Theatre, Glasgow
Directed by Mark Thomson
Edinburgh Evening News – Lee Randall
“Joanne Thomson, playing Kimberly, steals the show as a woman hell bent on vengeance.”
The Stage - Tom Dibdin
“...Kimberley (heartfelt and craftily drawn by Joanne Thomson)...”
Edinburgh Guide - Irene Brown ★★★★
“ Joanne Thomson’s enactment of the heavily pregnant Kimberley, a fierce and indomitable wife and daughter of gangsters, is outstanding. Her bump hugging, crab- like manoeuvring herself around Bruce’s apartment as she cleans up the crime scene is worthy of the best physical theatre.”
Evans Review – Julie Coy
“Dominic’s heavily pregnant girlfriend Kimberley (Joanne Thomson) switches from air-headed gangster’s moll to feisty ball-buster with impressive ease.”
The Herald – Neil Cooper ★★★★
“Joanne Thomson comes into her own here as Kimberly, sparring manically with Steven McNicoll's hangdog Bruce while Philip Cairns' Dominic and Josh Whitelaw's Skootch look on in a fast and furious piece of comic myth-making to die for.”
The Scotsman – Joyce McMillan ★★★★
“This show boasts a stunning series of performances, not only from David Ireland and Paul Sansom, but from Steven McNicoll as Bruce, Philip Cairns as the senior goon Dominic, and Joanne Thomson as Dominic’s no-holds-barred nine-months pregnant wife, Kimberley.”

The Independent – James Cusick
"Perhaps the most moving reading came from Joanne Thomson. Recently graduated from Glasgow’s Royal Conservatoire, she took on the role of the young wife of the Welsh poet Edward Thomas, who knew when waving goodbye to her officer husband, it would be the last time she would see him alive. In character and close to tears she said “there was nothing but the mist and snow and the silence of death.”
The Telegraph - Auslan Cramb
"In the the most moving moment of a dignified and understated service, Joanne Thomson, a young actress and graduate of the Royal Conservatoire Scotland, read from memory the heart-rending words of the wife of the poet Edward Thomas."

Tron Theatre, Glasgow

The Scotsman – Joyce McMillan
"Joanne Thomson’s beautifully-observed Lynn seems so
sure of her ground that her story is hard to dismiss"
King's Theatre, Edinburgh
The Stage – Tom Didbin
"Joanne Thomson adds a level of feisty to Cinderella
and has a delightful singing voice."
The Edinburgh Reporter - David Kettle
"Joanne Thomson and Paul Leubke are suitably starry-eyed
as Cinders and the Prince, and they sing well, too."
The Herald - Mary Brennan
"The Prince (Paul Leukbe) and Cinderella (Joanne Thomson)
prove a class act in the love duets."
Midsummer Night's Dream
Bard in the Botanics, Glasgow
directed by Emily Reutlinger
The Herald – Neil Cooper
"This Dream belongs to the women.
As played by Meghan Tyler and Joanne Thomson, Hermia and Helena are stronger, more assertive and more sexually knowing than sometimes seen, and their sparring here is a furious delight"
