“The drama of the courtroom, as a whole, is when this production comes most fully alive, the testimonies of both Bob and Mayella Ewell (Patrick O’Kane and Poppy Lee Friar respectively, both sensational) are filled with tension, anger, betrayal and disbelief.’ - Arifa Akbar (The Guardian)

“...racist Bob Ewell is a vivid member of the KKK in Patrick O’Kanes skilled performance.” - Paul t Davies (

“No less significant is the way Patrick O’Kane steers his Ku Klux Klan antagonist Bob Ewell away from being a swivel-eyed straw target. Yet still he burns with white fury at the condescension meted out by what he sees as an institutional conspiracy.’ - Patrick Marmion (The Daily Mail)
