The Business of Murder

“Ian Cairns as the mysterious Mr Stone sets an increasingly disturbing tone. He draws the story’s
other characters into an ever-tightening web. This role is essential to the play’s success and Cairns is
thorough and convincing.” The Stage

“Icing on the cake for me was Ian Cairns’ performance as Stone, whose thirst for revenge knew no
bounds. This character really gets under your skin with Ian’s spine-chilling performance. It was a case
of expression, stance and mannerisms that said as much if not more than the words.” Eastern Daily

Smells + Bells

"Director Lorenzo Mele’s show is tense and erotic, and sometimes very human, thanks to the aching
presence of Cairns.” The Stage

“ excellent performance…clean cut and credible...” The Herald

“I don’t like condemning things I haven’t seen but it’s outrageous.” Local Councillor

Molly's Collar and Tie

“Special mention must be made of the versatile Ian Cairns, who, as Buchanan and Gracie, reveals a
range in one play that many actors don’t display in a year.” The Scotsman

Diary of a Somebody

“Owing to a powerful performance from Ian Cairns as Halliwell, it’s the psychological self-destruction
of Orton’s lover which holds the attention.” The Scotsman

“... but the night truly belongs to shaven-headed Ian Cairns, who makes Halliwell a tragic figure to be
pitied rather than hated, a man pushed to the edge by his lover’s selfishness and sexual bragging. His
descent into self-loathing and depression is both touching and sad and at times painful to watch.” QX

“What rescues the evening from vague sentimentality is Ian Cairns’ persuasive Halliwell. Vain and
timid, he evokes a lonely man consumed by envy and self-disgust. First the wig goes, then his
conversation, finally his mind. It’s a performance that justifies this revival.” Time Out
