Liz won the 2015 JMK Young Director Award for her direction on Barrie Keeffe’s classic BARBARIANS at the Young Vic, which received critical acclaim: ‘Confidently directed…Stevenson makes the most of the play’s muscularity and her youthful cast bring out its gallows humour as well as its bleakness.’ **** (The Guardian). BARBARIANS was nominated for a 2016 Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in an Affiliate Theatre.
Whilst directing her own productions, Liz has also been Assistant Director on numerous shows at Manchester Royal Exchange, Hampstead Theatre, The Gate and Menier Chocolate Factory.
