Terry as Parnell in Hooked

Hooked, Theatre 503 in Battersea

“Terence burns plays the part of the shady cockney club manager entertainingly and delivered the best “F**k off” this Londonista has seen in a long time.”

The Londonist, 2nd August 2009


Hooked, George 2 at Edinburgh Festival

“The sleazy club owner (Terence Burns) is especially well acted in his brutality and indifference, adding poignancy to the suffering of those wrapped up in this unwholesome world.”

Magnus Huntly-Grant,, 13th August 2009


Terry as Roy in Lone Star


Hooked, George 2 at the Edinburgh Festival

“Terence Burns is perfectly cast as the sleazy club owner, Parnell. His scenes with Monique are particularly convincing, causing hair to stand up on the back of the neck at his disturbing and realistically confronting behaviour.”

Skye Crawford, Fringe Review, 30th August 2009.


Lone Star, Brooke Green Hotel at Cellar

“In contrast Burns as Roy is the masculine alter-ego to his brother, he is firm, controlling and in the intimate space of the stage he is scarily violent…. The reaction Burns gives as his character finds out Ray has been sleeping with his wife multiple times. Lone Star suddenly becomes electric – the small audience gasp in disbelief then slowly there is an uncomfortable silence before the rage is delivered in violence. Simply superb theatre!”

Jake, The Younger Theatre (online), 8th May 2010
