Delilah Review: "McAloney as Delilah’s brother Dominic was very strong in the male role. I would have liked to have seen more of McAloney’s work as she had a stronger grasp on her character and more of a fight and concern for her sister. McAloney successfully conveyed the stakes for her character which immediately drew the audience in. These scenes were a breath of fresh air however there weren’t enough of them" - Travis Handcock, Theatre People 2018.
