"But it is even from the gigantic presence of its protagonist, the sensational Rachel Pengilly, that Comments derives most of its strength. Pengilly is a true revelation, and I hope she will build a career in the industry." Eduardo Kacic, Kacic's Films | Review for 'Comments' "This production hinges on the astonishing performance of Rachel Pengilly... Ms Pengilly’s presence on stage is stunningly accurate as a child, to the point where I assumed she must have been twelve-years-old (Ms Pengilly is an artistic director at Ribix Productions and an adult). Her posture and movement, voice and expression are utterly convincing." Cathy Bannister, Stage Whispers | Review for 'Wolf Lullaby' "Bell’s play is set around a nine-year-old girl, Lizzie, convincingly portrayed by Rachel Pengilly in a carefully judged performance which keeps the audience guessing throughout." Bill Stephens, Australian Arts Review | Review for 'Wolf Lullaby' "Pengilly's performance... is mesmerising, charting a child's journey from innocence to bewilderment, delusion and terror.” Peter Wilkins, Canberra Times | Review for 'Wolf Lullaby'
