Big Telly’s artistic director has been awarded an honorary doctorate by Ulster University for ‘her work as one of Northern Ireland’s most respected theatre directors and for her commitment to dramatic arts’.
Ulster University invited Zoe and her family to the Coleraine Campus for the award ceremony in July. She donned some very fancy robes and was awarded the Doctorate by Big Telly’s patron, James Nesbitt. We all had a glass of bubbly or three to celebrate afterwards.
A very agreeable day, and a well deserved award for surely one of the hardest working, most innovative artistic directors out there. So, it’s Dr. Seaton these days – but we wouldn’t recommend calling in a medical emergency!
