Caroline Hunt

I started as an actor with RSC and RNT. But more recently I have been a director. I have worked in strange and quirky spaces and directing new writing. I have been lucky in seeing and using a more physical and interactive approach to my work since being in Bristol and learning from the work of fellow practitioners. I enjoy brainstorming, working with words in strange spaces. But I would be really happy if anyone asked me to do a classic play too.
