Posted in hell on wheels, previews, tv with tags , , , , , , , on 16 August, 2013 by ambarussa

Uh uh uh… there seems to be some disagreement about parentage and family between Messrs Ferguson and Toole! Watch the two locking horns before being interrupted by Cullen Bohannan, the  “only upstanding man in America”.

After hearing of Gregory’s passing, the honorable New York City copper heads West to do right and marry his brother’s widow and raise the child as his own. You can imagine Elam’s reaction. But why do that when we’ve got a sneak peek of it below.

Here some screencaps for you:

Hatfields & McCoys: New Videos and Character Biographies

Posted in hatfields & mccoys, previews, tv with tags , , , , , on 21 May, 2012 by ambarussa

New videos and biographies of the various characters are now available at the Hatfields & McCoys page over at

Your starting point to dive into the family history of the two feuding clans and watch some footage of Damian O’Hare as Ellison Hatfield in the process is


Due to the wonders of Flash it’s not possible to give you direct links, so here’s what to do:

You’re asked to pick a side: pick “Hatfields”. Click on “Ellison” to read the character biography.

“Devil Anse’s youngest brother Ellison is large and powerful and functions as a family peacemaker until tragedy strikes.”

Close the window and click on “Cotton Top Mounts”, and you can watch a video showing some footage of the show and interview bits with actor Noel Fisher. Cotton Top Mounts is the illegitimate son of Ellison Hatfield, so here’s where you can see Damian.

Cotton Top seems to be kind, innocent and he likes bunny rabbits, so by the logic of TV, he’ll very likely meet a cruel end.

*checks wikipedia*


For those of you who can’t get the video to work, here are some screencaps.


Hatfields & McCoys: Theatrical Trailer

Posted in hatfields & mccoys, previews, tv with tags , , , , , on 25 April, 2012 by ambarussa

The teaser has been circulating on the web for weeks, but here’s now finally the theatrical trailer of “Hatfields & McCoys”.

And it’s yet another case of “Where is Damian?” – this was the Age of Beards and Hats; at least for me, it’s difficult to tell one guy from the other. I think the following screencaps show Damian O’Hare; just a wild guess based on Ellison Hatfield’s fate.

Ellison Hatfield was stabbed to death, just like this character. Is it Damian? We’ll know come 28th May.

“The Grapes of Wrath”: review(s) of performance at The King’s Theatre in Edinburgh

Posted in grapes of wrath, previews, theatre with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on 13 October, 2009 by ambarussa

Updated as they come.

WHATSONSTAGE.COM (review by Rebecca Hale) *****

“(…) The performances of Tom (Damian O’Hare) and Ma Joad (Sorcha Cusack) are worthy of particular note. (…)”

“(…) This is a must see: there are few laughs and strangely for the subject matter, it is not a tear-jerker. However, watching this play is a humbling experience because it leaves the audience wondering how they would fare if they had a real-life role to play in this fictional, but too-true story. This is what Steinbeck intended. (…)”

LOTHIAN LIFE (review by Ros MacKenzie)

“(…) this powerful piece of theatre resonates in this time of new depression. (…)”

ONSTAGE SCOTLAND (review by Michael Cox)  ***

“(…) This is not to say that it is a bad production, because it isn’t.  The three hours do pass fairly quickly, and there are some rather good performances, notably from Oliver Cotton as the fallen Reverend Jim Casy, Sorcha Cusack as kind-hearted matriarch Ma Joad, Christopher Timothy as hard-working and honest Pa Joad and Damian O’Hare as the recently paroled and politically conscious son Tom. (…)”

THE SCOTSMAN (review by Susan Mansfield)

“(…) Last night a man in the audience gave us a standing ovation. He was an American whose grandfather was driven off his 300-acre farm in 1935 in return for $1. How relevant is that? What about the immigrants in this country who are being ripped off picking fruit now? Nothing changes, does it? (…)”

THE SCOTSMAN (review by Joyce McMillan) ****

“(…) And if the production never does quite enough to escape from its period, and overcome the resistance of those in the audience who seem more interested in the family’s vintage truck than in their human tragedy, it still tells this great story with directness and passion, for anyone who wants to hear it. (…)”

THE SCOTSMAN (review by Thom Dibdin)

“(…) A truly tragic and epic tale, told with just the right balance of realism and suggestion to entertain and leave you reeling at mankind’s worst instincts. (…)”

And because it’s the audience buying the tickets, not the critics:


“(…) The script was a clever mix of comedy and sadness. (…)”

“(…) This was my first play and it was very good. (…)”

“(…) It was absolutely brilliant. All the actors were extremely good. (…)”


“Grapes of Wrath at King’s Theatre – well-played and affecting. If full of wonky accents. Unless Steinbeck was writing about Manchester.” – emusiclove
