Quotes "I was interviewed by Yvonne as a segment for Irish Hearts, the arts show on Irish Radio International. She's a funny, informed and laidback presenter who quickly puts her guests at ease - no mean feat in terms of remote - phone or Skype - conversations where you have to be quick-thinking to make it sound natural. I look forward to hearing much more of her arts broadcasting in the future. " Writer, VO Artist, Performer, Workshop Leader, Casting Director. October 9, 2017 Quotes

Quotes Yvonne Coughlan and RSVP took part in the 2011 Corona Fastnet Short Film Festival. Their mission was to write, shoot and edit a short film in the four days of the festival, and to present the finished film on the final evening. The end result showed a great appreciation and understanding of the process, particularly the inevitable technical difficulties that can arise from severe restrictions of time and budget. We enjoyed having them around...they arrived, took over their space and got on with it. I would have no hesitation in recommending RSVP for their drive, their enthusiasm and their professionalism.

Quotes The opportunity to work with Yvonne and everyone at RSVP who made the Three Plays at Kinsale Arts Weekend possible was nothing short of a gift. In such uncertain times that seem so endless, I really can't describe my joy and sense of gratitude toward being offered a role and experience that, despite the subject matter of Six Minutes to Wonderland, was so refreshingly lighthearted. Stephen Wyley put it beautifully in rehearsals when he said, and I'm paraphrasing, that it was such a unique moment in history to be a part of, being able to perform in the midst of a global microbiological crisis, and it's an experience I'll cherish throughout my career. Yvonne was a dream to have as a director who gave me the perfect blend of her own insights and the confidence and reassurance of how my personal truth as the character was enough to achieve the performance. 17 Sept. 2020.

Quotes In a period of time when the arts seemed to be withering I was so delighted to be offered such a different and inventive chance to perform. From start to finish Yvonne was professional and accommodating, and made everything possible with her dedication, grit, and sense of humor! I enjoyed the whole experience immensely. I met a wonderful actor Caoifhionn, a joy to act with, and together, we got to work with a new form of acting - DISTANCE. The production itself and the way it was set up showed wonderful ingenuity and proves where there is a will there is a way. More companies should be thinking of productions in this manner. Thank you everyone for such a unique experience.I loved it! ! 17 Sept. 2020 Quotes

Quotes I have had the pleasure to work with Yvonne on a number of projects over the years. It is difficult to properly outline her skills and strengths as with her, these things adapt, grow and strengthen with each project. The best I can do is this - Yvonne is kind, gentle, dedicated and guides as well as leads those working with her to examine and explore a wider reach of options in creativity for their particular portion of the entirety. She does this while juggling the myriad of decisions and problems that arise with a production. While she can be flexible when necessary, Yvonne respects and meets deadlines and goals. She is a difficult person to say no to, on the rare occasion that happens, as you know you will be missing out on a lovely experience. Thank you for the opportunity to share my opinion.

Quotes Eve of All Saints, [which] was written by Myles Breen and directed by Yvonne Coughlan. When the audience walked into the Daghdha space (a refurbished former church) there were three actors in-situ in statue-like poses. It was innovative use of the venue too. The show started with two teenagers turning up to spend Halloween night in a spooky church and it quickly became apparent that they were not alone, as the statues began to speak and move. These included Mary Magdalene and Saint Bernadette. Then a statue of Jesus appeared, only he wasn't the real deal; he was only Giovanni, the Italian model, who the first sculptures of the Lord were based on. There were some very funny observations about religion and the saints' lives i.e. Mary Magdalene is tired of still being called a whore after all these years. The play was really impressive. The cast was: Clodagh Callanan, Jared Nadin, Ellen Gough, Vanessa Murray, Maria O'Callaghan and Pius McGrath. Quotes
