They said 'when Abigail began to explore and rehearse pieces for her grade 8 Speech and Drama, she showed an incredible amount of commitment to not only learning university standard theory such as Stanislavki’s seven planes and Laban’s efforts, but also to apply this theory to her practice. Abi showed an immense amount of mature learning in the characters she played and through the performance of a rich programme of work.'
