His original musical The House of Mirrors & Hearts won the Musical Theatre Matters Award for Best New Musical Score at the Edinburgh Festival in 2010, and had a critically acclaimed run at London's Arcola Theatre in 2015:
"O'Dwyer's score has a pleasingly complex bent to it, full of intensely unexpected harmonies and contrapuntal melodic lines… the music emerges as a thing of jagged beauty."
