What Students say...

Samantha Davies

“It was an enjoyable experience, which helped me understand Shakespeare much better, which also helped loads with my GCSEs. Some people think it’s sad to like Shakespeare but I really enjoyed reading Shakespeare’s plays. I would love to do something like this again.”

What Teachers say...

Sarah Robinson

“Fortunes Fool Theatre Company were crucial in the development and preparation of our school’s 2009 entry to the Shakespeare Schools Festival. Their professionalism and enthusiasm was second to none, making the workshops entertaining, informative and relevant to the students. It was pleasing to see students walking away from the workshops and understanding that iambic pentameter is not just a band from the 60’s. I will definitely be asking them back in the future!”
