“The film is told from Laura’s perspective, a point of view approximated here not by narration but by the extraordinary emotional transparency of Ms. Yelland’s delicate face, which becomes the production’s lodestone. She and Mr. Sturrock occasionally sing themselves, wistfully. But they never join in the larky high jinks of the other performers.

And these first rate interpreters never wink at their characters’ seriousness, even when they fall straight backward into swoons or are strapped into harnesses to be sent flying into empyrean realms.” - Ben Brantley (New York Times)

MY COUSIN RACHEL - Gate Theatre, Dublin

“It falls to Yelland, though, to reconcile the play’s gender themes with the breathless mystery of her character. Rachel, she knows, is the embodiment of a male fear and a fantasy, a black widow, a seductress, a ruinous gold-digger. Du Maurier’s corkscrew plot twists may make her a conundrum, but Yelland preserves a tightrope balance between mystique and battered pragmatism, alive to the fact that Rachel has been made – by her suitors and her author – a canvas for deep desires and dark imaginings.” - Peter Crawley (The Irish Times)
