The next apprentice for you to get to know is Cara Cunningham.
Cara is a graduate of Trinity Western University where she received her BA in Theatre. Most recently Cara took a playwriting class through Langara College under the direction of Lucia Frangione. Cara is very excited to be a playwriting apprentice at Pacific Theatre and looks forward to what this next year will bring.

Your top three categories in Trivial Pursuit? (Invented or real): I have never actually played Trivial Pursuit... but I googled it and I think I would like Entertainment, History and Arts. I should really play this game.
