"We were so impressed by the professionalism and vast knowledge of the staff, and would like you to pass on our thanks to the two actors that took us through our paces....They both made the day so interesting for the students, and staff, and I’m sure this has helped them with their understanding of Othello, and future exams. We will certainly be booking again in the future."
