AWARDS - actor THE SCHOOL - DR AMY WINTERCRAIG Best Female Performance nomination, 2019 OzFlix Independent Film Awards SWALLOW - REBECCA Best Ensemble nomination, 2016 Sydney Theatre Awards CREDITS - director | dramaturg A MIDNIGHT VISIT (Syd/Perth/Melb) Associate Artist / Dance Captain Dir. Danielle Harvey Broad Encounters THE MERCHANT OF VENICE Assistant Director, incl. venue transfer Dir. Damien Ryan Sport For Jove THE PLAYOFFS (2nd Age Project) Co-Writer / Co-Director w/ Scott Sheridan Sport For Jove PINK (Belvoir Youth Express) Assistant Director Dir. James Winter Belvoir St / Twenty10 COMFORTABLE Script Development Dir. Laura Dudgeon Scope Red THE DEATH OF GEORGE MONTGOMERY Dramaturg Co-dir. Matt Levet | Julian Tynan Co-prod. Kayne Taylor | Matt Levett REVIEWS - actor CRUNCH TIME – SUSY "Megan Drury’s poise and precision are highlights of the production." - Seán Maroney, Australian Book Review "Particularly good are Guy Edmonds as the troubled, scatty Luke, and Megan Drury as the stridently forceful Susy." - Frank Hatherly, Stage Whispers “…as Susy and Lauren, Jimmy and Luke, Megan Drury, Emma Palmer, Matt Minto and Guy Edmonds make much of their opportunities and capitalise on every chance offered." - Diana Simmonds, Stage Noise A MIDNIGHT VISIT - THE ACTRESS “I ended up frequently encountering The Actress, portrayed by Megan Drury, and her stagecraft and diversity were outstanding.” - Alex First, The Blurb “A highlight of the night was the reenactment of Juliet’s monologue, the moment before she swallows the poison in Romeo And Juliet.” - Ross Battaglia, Milk Bar Mag THE SCHOOL - DR AMY WINTERCRAIG "Megan Drury is brilliant in the lead role. Conflicted, spookily irrationally composed, she gives Amy a calmness of exterior complemented with logical, measured decision making. The occasional contrasting outbursts of violent grief and loss draw the empathy of the viewer and immerse one even deeper in the weirdness around her. Drury helms the film with charismatic suffering and maternal strength of will as the mystery elements of the narrative overwhelm Amy and narrow her options." - Judith Greenaway, Sydney Arts Guide SWALLOW – REBECCA “Drury traces her character’s journey brilliantly as she discovers more and more of her own strength over the course of the play…” - Ben Neutze, Daily Review “Rebecca proves to be a complex character as we are slowly presented with different dimensions. Drury’s subtle reveals are captivating…” - Loredana Cross, Theatre Now “Drury’s Rebecca is a glorious study in festering nerves…” - Cassie Tongue, Time Out A PROPERTY OF THE CLAN – RACHEL / DIANE “Megan Drury is especially memorable in both her parts as Rachel and Diane. Her transformations from one to the other are fluently executed, and the balance she achieves between the divergent qualities of youth and gravity is beautifully measured.” - Suzy Wrong, Suzy Goes See “Megan Drury is excellent as both single mother Diane and high-scrupled schoolgirl, Rachel. Drury finds the truth and depth of both characters in carefully controlled reactions, beautifully timed delivery – and emotional veracity.” - Carol Wimmer, Stage Whispers “…fantastic performances… George Banders, Megan Drury, Jack Starkey-Gill and Samantha Young deserve the greatest accolades.” - Sean Maroney, The Music (themusic.com.au) TWELFTH NIGHT – OLIVIA “Megan Drury’s Olivia, cock-teasing, contemptuous, reckless, self-absorbed, has a flighty-film-star quality, like Blanchett… (or Wendy Hughes, indeed, indeed; like Wendy, always).” - Bob Ellis, Table Talk “Megan Drury’s Olivia made for high comedy in her self-indulgence” - Penny Gay, Reviewing Shakespeare “Megan Drury as Olivia performs with such energy and passion” - Jane Simmons, SOYP RUBEN GUTHRIE - VIRGINIA “Drury’s slow revelation of the black hole at the core of Virginia’s personality is exceptionally well done.” - Jason Blake, The Sun-Herald “…one of the performers who manages to transcend this is Megan Drury, as Ruben’s AA friend, a young woman who can express herself only in clichés but whose troubled love for Ruben is finally moving.” - John McCallum, The Australian “Excellent performances by Schmitz and Drury ensure that real pain is perceived behind the comedy.” - Mark Hopkins, The Sydney Morning Herald “…an impressive cast. Megan Drury provides a robust fragility in her portrayal of Virginia…” - Augusta Supple, Australian Stage Online MACQUARIE – MRS MACQUARIE “But for me this show was very much centred around Megan Drury’s Elizabeth Macquarie. Tender, intelligent, forthright and exquisite - there is something simply illuminating about Drury. She is elegant, powerful and poetic – a suite of adjectives, I know, but she is the ultimate Mrs Macquarie.” - Augusta Supple, augustasupple.com TITANIC - LIDIA “Outstanding in terms of connection were the performances of the doubtful siblings by Snow and Drury who came together in some of the most hilarious and moving scenes of the play.” - Brett Casben, Australian Stage Online LOVE’S TRIUMPH – CHASTITY / BABY IDIOTT “Megan Drury is sassy as Hoover’s country sidekick, “Baby” Idiott, just as she is convincingly sweet as Edwina’s daughter, Chastity (and with a good tongue for the verse).” - Martin Portus, Sydney Star Observer “… laudable cast boasts unforgettable performances from Gary Scale, Mark Owen Taylor and Megan Drury…” - Lloyd Bradford Syke, Australian Stage Online
