Ellie’s first encounter with Coney was in 2012 when she ran a casting workshop for House of Cards, working with us again more recently in 2017 as Project Producer on the national tour of REMOTE. She is very pleased to have added an ‘s’ to that title and to be working with Coney as their new Projects Producer from November 2018.
She has over ten years experience in the theatre and arts industry, accruing a number of job titles during this time including Producer, Director, Maker, Programmer, Facilitator. Her career highlights to date include winning the IdeasTap Underbelly Award for her verbatim play The Love Project, and taking this out on a national tour; creating projects with ex-offenders and those at risk of offending as an Associate Artist at Only Connect; facilitating a verbatim musical with Musical Theatre students at Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts; working as the Associate Director on the various incarnations of Look Left Look Right’s Fringe First and Total Theatre award-winning You Once Said Yes; and managing the Creative Workshops programme at IdeasTap.
Ellie joins us after two seasons with Assembly Festival as Programmer and Producer, programming over 200 shows a year at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
