A Preston graduate is getting noticed in the arts world after her two shows caught the eye of acclaimed artists.

Catherine Shaw, who recently graduated in contemporary theatre from the University of Central Lancashire, is putting on two performances at the Media Factory.

Shaw, 21, put together the Derelict ’14 Programme as part of her final year project.

Now two shows Near Gone and My Son and Heir are to be put on by the Two Destination Language and Search Party arts groups.

Shaw, who is currently working for arts group They Eat Culture, said: “I’ve had some fantastic feedback on the Derelict Programme and am particularly pleased with the acknowledgement from The Guardian.

“I am passionate about bringing engaging performances and talent to Preston and I hope the forthcoming shows at UCLan’s Media Factory are a success with the local community.”
