"Ms. Sexton’s character, is a bewitching combination of frail, disheveled beauty, exhausted defeat and stifled ardor."

"With grim stoicism tinged with glimmers of strength, actress Laoisa Sexton vividly portrays Ian’s young lover, Neasa, who faces unwed abandonment with her child and who is forced to board with Ian’s brother. There’s one anguished moment between them where their contentious struggle devolves into arm wrestling and leads up to Ian’s devastating rejection"- DC Theatre Scene

" Both provide rich portrayals of emotionally troubled characters, especially in extended monologues that flesh out their respective plights. Ditto Laoisa Sexton as the exasperated mother of Ian’s child, who in her single poignant scene captures the frustrations of every abandoned parent."

"Each one of the actresses is absolutely brilliant, taking on a different role and tone that keeps this little world in balance.  Laoisa Sexton's Martha is feisty and playful, as much as she can be... she hasn't yet been defeated by Delo. Sexton has perhaps the biggest challenge - going from someone able to cope to someone then thrown into complete despair"- The Fab Marquee

“This tale is riveting and the ending of the play is the best kind…Larry  strides into a spotlight telling the audience a story, and I am immediately spellbound. Soon Zoe (Laoisa Sexton) joins him and between the two of them I am in aural heaven, their every word adding to the vivid scenario in my head."   - theatreiseasy.com

"Sexton is a pleasure to watch as she expressed the figure’s wild mood swings. Her approach to performance is nimbly minimal; she makes superb use of moments of silence, her small movements and expressions conveying the essence of the character."  ArtsFuse.Org

"For Love" remains the only play I've ever seen in which a man trying to seduce a woman ends up getting her off, and not himself. That's hard to write in a review, and I can't fathom the courage it took to write it and then act the scene, as Laoisa Sexton does. She's a force to be reckoned with" ★★★★★ Irish Examiner USA
