A Plethora of Good Reviews for Nicky Priest playing Dominic in Jellyfish

Jellyfish is the story of a first kiss, chips by the beach and coming of age with Down’s Syndrome in a seaside town. It’s a unique romance across uncharted waters which asks: does everyone really have the right to love as they choose?

‘Nicky Priest shines in some of the funniest scenes as Dominic, a man with Asperger’s who Agnes sends on a misguided blind date with Kelly; the pair end up bonding over other’s assumptions about people ‘like them’.’ – The Evening Standard ★★★★

‘Nicky Priest’s lethally witty Dominic’ – The Telegraph ★★★

‘Dominic, a boy with Asperger’s, played with poignant particularity by Nicky Priest’ – Daily Mail ★★★★

‘Nicky Priest as Dominic, who has Asperger’s, and who Agnes thinks would be a more suitable boyfriend for Kelly, is outstanding. His timing is Swiss-watch perfect, making every line and reaction he delivers hilarious and winning. The construction of the scene in which Dominic’s literalism exposes the subtext of Agnes and Kelly’s emotional battle takes us through lens after lens of how personal and social dynamics might be seen and are seldom confronted truthfully. He is a delight to watch and I can’t wait to see more of his work.’ – LondonTheatre ★★★★
