Notes

Backpedal Selection For Sundance Film Festival Alice In Slasherland: Nominated for a GLUG Award - Most Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role in a Play Coram Boy Stage Whispers - "And Joshua McElroy is Meshak and Mish. It is his performance that lingers at the edges of the memory, just as his characters linger at the edges of society. Whether hugging the sides of the stage as he stalks his “angel”, sobbing over the dead babies he buries, cowering under Otis’ harsh beatings or reaching up through waves of haze to save his “angel baby”, McElroy’s performance captures symbolically the downtrodden and neglected that hover on the outskirts of society." Audrey Journal - "Joshua McElroy is very plausible as Meshak, who comes across as anything but the generic simpleton his father believes him to be." Theater People - "The cast of 15 works as a cohesive unit to make those bigger sequences work, but the individual performances also deserve recognition. McElroy’s wonderful portrayal of the mistreated and degraded Meshak is hugely sympathetic, giving us a sense of the young man’s profound torment." Night Writes - "When the production is allowed to breathe, like in the forest as Otis’s disabled son Meshak (Joshua McElroy) is burying babies amongst the haunting swaying bodies of other actors, this experimental use of the body as unconventional storytelling devise is most effective and impactful." Lady Lemoncholy - "One of the show’s finest performers, Joshua McElroy’s harrowing portrayal of the tragic young Meshak highlights the character’s exploitation and loneliness, prompting the audience’s desperate compassion, and flawlessly infusing the stage with the boy’s pain and fear." Sydney Arts Guide - "Meshak is played by Joshua McElroy with attuned conviction." Sydney Theatre Reviews - "McElroy as the central figure of the production and the link between the three main stories, does well in the physically and emotionally demanding depiction of a neglected and abused disabled man. As a character written deep within the tropes of disabled representation in literature and on stage, Mcelroy conveys a welcome sense of compassion and interior autonomy in Meshak." Mercury Fur Suzy Goes See - Josh McElroy is particularly impressive as Party Guest, the worst kind of bad guy, completely despicable, but made thoroughly entertaining by McElroy’s uninhibited portrayal. Spring Awakening Winner of the Sydney Theatre Award - Best Production For Young People Sydney Morning Herlad - McElroy makes Moritz's plight touching, and by bringing a desperate edge to Sheiks Dont Do Sadness, he makes a trite song difficult to dismiss. Jo Litson: Scene and Heard - McElroy gives a compelling, intuitive performance as Moritz, which seems to pour untrammelled straight from his gut and heart; one that keeps you transfixed whenever he is on stage. Daily Review - It's a scrappy and unusual but very smart take on the role. Kevin Jackson - Josh McElroy, as Moritz, sustained the play/musical demands for his character more successfully and has a charisma that demands that you pay attention. Oedipus Doesn't Live Here Anymore: Nominated for a GLUG award - Most Outstanding Performance By A Newcomer Nominated for Sydney Theatre Award - Best Production For Young People Asylum Stage Whispers - The stand out performer was Jason McElroy as the troubled snarling son. His portrayal was electric. Suzy Goes See - Joshua McElroy is particularly memorable as Jason. Simultaneously intense and vulnerable, the actor’s confidence is unflappable even in the venue’s extremely close quarters. One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest Upstaged Reviews - Josh McElroy gives an honest and focused performance as Martini, with his complete immersion in the role allowing for good comic timing to wonderfully shine through. Blackrock Upstaged Reviews - Joshua McElroy gives an excellent performance as Scott Abbey, a Blackrock local, propelling himself into the character in a way that is both believable and highly engaging. It requires a great boldness to allow yourself as an actor to access the abominable depths of a character, that which is outwardly vehemently rejected by society. Victims are paraded and put on show while perpetrators are protected and hidden. He puts it out there for all to see.
