"I was completely lost when I graduated. My school sent us into the world and I was completely unprepared with how to handle the industry and it's ups and downs. A friend took me to The Mono Box and I instantly remembered why I chose to train as an actor; I felt supported by the kindness of Polly and Joan and the volunteers, who explained they they often felt the same way. It was an immediate hug when I was down and keeps me going now when I am up. Training never stops but you need the right people to do it with."

"First of all I just wanted to say thank you SO much for everything! I started coming to your speech surgeries and workshops in around October time last year and I cannot tell you how much I have enjoyed and gained from my time with you. I've had a break from all things acting for the past 5 years but I made the decision to audition for drama school at the end of last year. I decided to use it as experience for next year because I knew how unlikely it was to get into anything in the first year. However, I somehow managed to get onto the Foundation course at Oxford School of Drama! Although it's not the 3 year course I auditioned for, after a break, I think it will be a great stepping stone for me!

 

Honestly, I would not have had a CLUE what I was doing when it came to anything to do with Drama school and the industry without the Monobox and my one-to-one sessions there so I just wanted to tell you how happy I am to have found you! I recommend you to all the people I audition with too!"
