Ellie is a character, in fact, she’s many characters. Eight women live inside her. She also presents lectures on domestic arts topics. Who can resist Speaking of Unmentionables: The Rise and Fall of Ladies’ Underwear? or the chance to meet a scandalous woman who is also an angry ghost in Regretting Mr. Wright: Mamah Tells Her Own Story? Ellie believes that properly costumed living history is the closest we can come to a time machine experience…so far. Theatre and history combine to show what the past might really have looked, felt, smelled, and sounded like in Ellie’s presentations. There are slide shows, audio and video clips of most of Ellie’s work on this site. Please click on the tab for either Tasting History, Lectures or Interpretations and select the program that interests you. You’ll find more information there and can watch or listen to Ellie in action. We hope you enjoy! Booking information can be found in the FAQ section of this site. Click here for YouTube Channel.
