The show received mixed reviews, though Martin received unanimously positive reviews for her performance, with The Stage writing “Meaghan Martin – best known for film work – makes a strong stage debut here, nailing her part as a stand-up comic desperate for approval, wincing anxiously every time her laugh track plays”. Michael Billington of The Guardian called Martin’s performance “Chilling”, writing: “Meaghan Martin plays, with a marvellous mix of ingratiation and panic, a collapsing standup who pleadingly asks: ‘Do you find me funny or disturbing?’ On a lighter note, Martin also appears to great effect as a Hollywood hustler meeting a dithering dramatist”.

Martin starred in award-winning short films Wives of the Landed Gentry and British political satire Bad News which premiered at the 2020 London Independent Film Festival at Vue Cinema West End. Martin played Henrietta in the video game Kosmokrats with actor Bill Nighy.

Never Not Once received positive 4 and 5 star reviews from critics including The GuardianWhatsOnStageThe Upcoming, and London TheatreThe Guardian called the play “Gut-wrenching, weighty and forceful – a visceral interrogation of the lasting effects and consequences of rape”. The Upcoming said “This is a play for our time, the topics it discusses resonate in every corner of society”. Critics praised Martin’s “superbly acted” performance. Everything Theatre called Martin “spine-tingling and uncomfortably brilliant” and The Arts Desk praised a “pitch-perfect Meaghan Martin”. London Theatre wrote “Eleanor is very believably acted by Meaghan Martin with a terrific sense of energy and disbelief at the havoc she has unleashed by her quest for the truth”. WhatsOnStage described Eleanor as “imbued with irresistible warmth and energy by Meaghan Martin”.

In March 2022, it was announced that Martin would star in the upcoming British rom-com feature film Ten Dates, alongside a cast including Rosie DayRhiannon Clements and Sagar Radia. Filming began in April 2022. The film is due for release in February 2023.

Smoke opened at Southwark Playhouse on February 1, 2023, to very positive 4 and 5 star reviews from London critics including 5 stars from The Arts Desk and Theatre News, and 4 stars from WhatsOnStageTheatre WeeklyLondon Theatre Reviews, and Everything Theatre. In particular, Martin’s performance was highly praised with WhatsOnStage writing “Higginson and Martin are delivering two of the most exciting performances on any current London stage”. WhatsOnStage goes on to say “what makes Smoke rise from thought-provoking shocker to unmissable event, is the quality of the acting. Meaghan Martin and Oli Higginson are astonishing. Tender, brutal and utterly convincing, the measured sensuality of their movements contrasting intriguingly with line deliveries so naturalistic they sound like improvisation, this stunning pair mine Davies’s text for all its dark humour and ambiguity.” The Arts Desk 5 star review from critic Gary Naylor praised Davies’ “dazzling Strindberg update” as a “complicated, clever and challenging play unafraid to treat its audience as grown-ups and all the more rewarding for that.” Naylor writes that “the co-directors, Polina Kalinina and Júlia Levai are extremely adept at constructing this delicious set up and get super performances from their leads”, before concluding that “Meaghan Martin, perfectly captures the coquettish bravado of Julie, that curdles into confusion, fear, and a cruetly both inflicted and endured.”

As of its release on April 30 2023, Meaghan Martin can be seen starring in feature film Journey alongside Rafael Cebrian, Arcelia Ramirez and Gustavo Sanchez ParraJourney is a drama feature written and directed by Christopher Rodriguez and explores poignant themes of family, love, legacy, and immigration – shot on location on the border between the US and Mexico.
