"The show was fantastic, we loved it! Engaging, interactive, stimulating. It truly felt like the Duke of Gloucester was in the room with us – an experience that I never thought I’d be able to share with my students."
"She kept the whole act going, full of movement. It was funny and very enjoyable to watch."

"From the moment I walked into the theatre, the performance was interesting and engaging – I liked that she was in character from the beginning. I loved that she used audience participation to tell the story. It made it much easier to understand. She is extremely talented actress and I would happily watch it all over again."
Hannah Mason (Year 2 Performing Arts, Newcastle under-Lyme College)
"I am not a huge Shakespeare fan, but I thoroughly enjoyed the performance. The amount learnt for the one woman show was impressive. It was interesting take on Shakespeare which made it more enjoyable to watch. I loved how the audience was involved in the performance. The workshop was different due to having to put Shakespeare into modern day English. If there was more time, I would have liked to see more."
Charlotte Sylvester (Year 2 Performing Arts, Newcastle under-Lyme College)
"I enjoyed watching your production very much. I found it very helpful to watch a Shakespeare production when performing one myself. It was useful to hear a professional actress speaking Shakespearean language so that I could hear how specific words are pronounced."
"Keeping the audience engaged and involving them in the production helped
audiences know what was happening. It was engaging and fun to watch / be
"Altogether I think that the performance was excellent; I found it very entertaining and active. One thing that I learnt from you is that eye contact with the audience isn’t a bad thing, and it actually worked great. I will try and look a the audience more rather than stare in to nothingness."
"Thank you Emily for coming to our school and performing Richard III. When I first came in to the room I didn’t understand what was happening and felt nervous. Through the performance you were really good at creating an atmosphere and allowing us to join in."
