QUOTES & REVIEWS
“Passion is Rob’s middle name. Oh and commitment. And anarchy. That’s quite a lot of middle names but he deserves all of them.” MEERA SYAL
"Mountford gives a beautiful performance which fuses rugged charm and childlike wonder" **** The Scotsman
"...anyone who enjoys a good evening’s theatre will come away grateful for a thrilling performance of a witty, original and totally satisfying piece... the rapt silence was interrupted only by chuckles of recognition and bursts of laughter.. Mountford is as fine an actor as you are likely to see on a Dublin stage this year" NoMoreWorkhore, Dublin
"The consistent strength of the acting, with an ambitious and clever script, makes this a tale worth telling – and one that’s told very well."**** The Upcoming
"Mountford’s performance is warm and exuberant, and he approaches his subject with a winning sincerity." *** The Stage
"what binds things together and propels the show along is Mountford’s charismatic conviction...Mountford is a passionate, volatile force, and he embodies Thin Lizzy frontman Phil Lynott’s swaggering egocentricity magnificently" *** The List
"He’s got a comedian’s timing and rock star’s charisma..."a double-album’s worth of humour and warmth, delivered with real zest." *** Fest

Just saw Vagabonds - one man show - @ActorRobMounty - stellar performance that choked me at the end.

"Vagabonds - My Phil Lynott Story" by @ActorRobMounty was such a cleverly written and intertwined piece about one boy and his hero. Go see!

This is brilliant @ActorRobMounty Vagabonds: unique, passionate, funny, the best of the Fringe.
...And on Facebook
Brian O'Rourke Went to see this one man play last night. Totally enjoyed it - a credit to the memory and legacy of Philo but covers a lot more that I could relate to personally.
John Sidgewick Such fun seeing you bring Lynott to life, Rob, in what turns out to be a far deeper and more personal a story than I had imagined. Wonderful work fellas!
Paul Robson Wonderful show and a fitting lament for heroes whoever they are and wherever they may be. Please tour!
Prudence Eely May your one man show highlighting our hero Philip Lynott be seen in many more towns all over, UK and Ireland. Again, thank you!
Alex McGrath to Leviathan's Goat
You two guys have put together are real gem and Rob's performance last night was pure class on what would have been the Great Man's 66th birthday. He would have been proud of it...and you have to take it to Dublin.. Hope to see you there.
