Emily portrayed Sarah in theatre production Time Stands Still, produced through her Production Company Eclipse Productions. Her performance and directing drew praise from media and theatre critics
“Producer/actor Emily J Stewart succeeds in her aim to “create a performance that was confronting, within a space where the actors could lose themselves and make it so intimate the audience forget they are watching a play but find themselves in someone's living room.”
- Sydney Arts Guide
“Acting has to be good at point blank range and so it is. Stewart (realistically made up with facial scars and a leg brace at first) creates believable tension.”
- Jason Blake, Theatre Critic
Emily also starred in the short film Still Life, which was commissioned for the NSW Sutherland Shire Council's depression awareness campaign.
