CREATIVE DIRECTOR AND CURATOR OF LIVE EVENTS
Caz began directing at the age of fifteen at her mother's Drama School, in Inverness. She took over the schools productions and LAMDA Examination responsibilities when her Mum became unexpectedly ill. Her interest in interpreting a playwrights vision in words has been an exciting journey. The next leg of this particular part of her portfolio is realising her own visions.
