Their first show ‘Captain Murderer and the Morecambe Mermaid’ toured nationally twice and they look forward to following its success with their second show (“when we get 5 minutes!”) 

This is Lisa’s second show directing for AZ2B and she is excited to be involved in ‘What Do You See?’ from its creation.
