Beside Ourselves is
After first training in musical theatre (Urdang 2007-’10), Eleanor trained with Fourth Monkey theatre company (Two Year Rep actor training programme) expanding her experience in devising, clown, mime, Commedia dell’arte and improvisation.
In 2015 Eleanor adapted a section of C S Lewis’s The Screwtape Letters from a dense text to a physical piece, which formed part of a scratch night at The Etcetera, Camden. She has been performing with Wet Picnic since May 2016, devising their latest productions The Ball and The Aperitif in their trademark physical comedy style. The shows continue to tour Outdoor Arts festivals.
