As Dottie in Good People

Geva Theatre Center

“…deliciously played by Peggy Cosgrave…superbly acted production…”
—Marcia Morphy, Rochester Democrat & Chronicle, October 27, 2014

“The actors playing Jean and Dottie might as well wear signs that say “Comic Relief,” but the characters do offer some sharp observations of their own. Pelletier and Cosgrave play them with gusto, and there is a sense that beneath their sarcasm, they do care about Margie.”
—David Raymond, Rochester CITY Newspaper, October 28, 2014

“The cast is impeccably talented—a group of actors so united and believable that the audience doesn’t dare imagine them as anyone but these characters.”
—Leah Stacy,, October 31, 2014

As Mrs. Kirby in You Can’t Take It with You

Geva Theatre Center

“The two families meet in one of the play’s best scenes, made successful largely through the funny, nuanced performances by Peggy Cosgrave and Robert Rutland as Alice’s prospective in-laws.”
—Michael Lassar, City Newspaper, September 26, 2012

“Robert Rutland and Peggy Cosgrave, two of my favorite character actors, are all one could ask for as Mr. and Mrs. Kirby, though it is a pity that she has such a small role in this play.“
—Herbert M. Simpson,, September 11, 2012

As Big Mama in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

Vienna English Theatre

“Peggy Cosgrave surprises with the sympathetic qualities of a neglected, oppressed Big Mama; one moment tearfully composed, the next, resolute and determined to fill the wishes of her dying husband.”
—Kronenzeitung, February 3, 2011

“An exquisite Big Mama by Peggy Cosgrave…“
—Der Neue Merker, February 3, 2011

Big Mamma
Cat on a Hot Tin Roof
Vienna English Theatre

“Big Mama is remarkable.  She gives the drama its shrillest note.  Perhapes her naivety is part of the cleverst lie, such a mother is adamant when it comes to revealing the truth.  In this production falsehood and truth remain in balance. That is called hope.”
—Die Presse, February 14, 2011
