Wild Cherries, 2019
“Troy Larkin, as Emil, delivers the most stirring performance in this production, powerfully articulating the hopelessness of a man who compares his degradation to that of an animal while wishing to become one – transforming the brooding despondency of his character into crazed anger.”
Matt Bell, Standing (Inn) Ovation
One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, 2017
“The stand out amongst this truly ensemble cast is Troy Larkin as Dale Harding who plays this knowledgable character almost in the role of a prophet of things to come...”
Samuel Barson, Theatre Press
We Can Work it Out, 2018
"Troy Larkin was a standout, as a particularly brooding, frustrated and cynical George."
Michael Brindley, Stage Whispers
Mein Kampf, 2014
“Mr Larkin, is an actor of enormous presence.... Whom we know we’ll see in the future"
Matthew Clayfield, Australian Stage
A Slight Ache, 2007
“The role with the most riding on it, however, is actually that of the mysterious matchseller, playedhere byTroy Larkin. Emerging from the shadows like a reaper, clutching a tray of wetmatchboxes in his talons, Larkin's Matchseller is the stuffof Gothic horror; his presence, like thatof Poe's raven above the chamber door, is ominous and disconcerting. When he turns to us, inthe play's final moments, and allows us, finally, to see his face, it is pale and weathered, amemento mori, mocking us with the inevitability of death, a thin and sickly smile across it."
