Ashley Jones’ performance is alive with subtle shifts and strategies. His is one of the most realistically repellent characters I’ve seen on stage in some time.
Audrey Journal - Jason Blake Date: 9 Nov 2017

Martin Ashley Jones was exceptional as the man looking for absolution. His unrelenting appeals ultimately alter our perception of him from good guy to repeat offender.

‘Paper Doll’ by Katy Warner – Old Fitz Theatre review by Joy Minter

Ashley Jones in his terrific performance swoops between repellent, powerful and controlling and drawing our compassion.
Performing Arts Hub - LYNNE LANCASTER

The atmosphere of menace that pervades PAPER DOLL playing at the Old Fitz Theatre is entirely repellent … and engrossing.  This is 40 minutes of required viewing. Required viewing because it is one of those rare events when stars align.
Extraordinary cast, Martin Ashley Jones is the man in this two-hander and Lucy Goleby is the woman.  They are a stellar pairing.
PAPER DOLL is next level thinking, this is advanced citizenship.  This is required theatre-going.

FRINGEWORLD 2019: Paper Doll | 5 Stars

Review | Laura Money
Jones is phenomenal.
Jones is quite simply, acting his heart out and I could watch him all night long.
If you like your theatre intellectually and emotionally stimulating, do not miss out on this gripping psychological thriller, played to perfection by two actors at the top of their game.

PAPER DOLL REVIEW: FRINGE WORLD FESTIVAL: 5 STARS
PELICAN MAGAZINEFEBRUARY 14, 2019
Words by Stirling Kain

Paper Doll is the show you wish every other production could be.
The performances of both Jones and Pearl were outstanding. Their monologues were memorable; their emotional outbursts, captivating. Until the very end, audiences were unsure whether Him was deserving of sympathy- until his subtly manipulative and disgusting reprehensibility’s were revealed. 
This show was an artistic stand-out; a masterpiece of contemporary Perth theatre; and an equally ambitious and successful production with no parallel in its field. In terms of its emotional depth, and the quality of its performances and script. Paper Doll is the show you wish every other production could be.
 In a testament to the quality of the acting, and the aptitude of playwright Katy Warner, not only did those involved successfully produce a poignant narrative, but they created a unique, gripping and mesmerising piece of theatre.
Paper Doll surpassed my every expectation to rapidly become one of my most memorable theatre experiences.

RAW, POWERFUL, AND DISTURBING: PAPER DOLL : GUTTER CULTURE

4 Stars
Suzanne Moore
The play opens with the seemingly broken “Him”—manifested skin-crawlingly well by Jones.
PAPER DOLL is not an easy play to watch, nor should it be. It is an important piece of work that gives voice to the ongoing distress and vulnerability of victims of sexual abuse.

FRINGE FEED: Paper doll: 4 Stars: Antonio Casella
Martin Ashley Jones is perfectly cast as the weak, manipulative, self-pitying predator driven by an obsessive passion.
If you want an hour of gripping, thought-provoking drama, this is one show you will want to catch.
