"Always a striking presence onstage" - The Age (Make Me A Houri, La Mama Theatre, 2019) "With a textured performance, Ashman features in a number of these scenes. In one, Lama chooses to make sandwiches whilst bombs fall so that her family can feed the soon-to-be homeless. In another, she accepts the practicality of marriage, and its role in a personal statement of resistance. These scenes stand out for having a feeling of uncluttered authenticity." - Australian Arts Review (Tales of a City by the Sea, 2016) Emina Ashman, as the slightly unhinged D’Agostino, captures the attention of the audience in every scene she is in. Ashman’s portrayal is a perfect combination of endearing, annoying and incredibly frightening." -Theatre Press (Bock Kills Her Father, La Mama Theatre, Melbourne Fringe 2015) * Emina Ashman holds a Malaysian passport and a UK Right of Abode.
