Eileen be­comes Ellen for one-woman show

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - What’s On -

There is noth­ing like a Dame ... to por­tray a Dame.

And theatre au­di­ences will get the chance to find out if that’s true when one of the coun­try’s best known ac­tresses, Dame Eileen Atkins, be­comes renowned Vic­to­rian ac­tress Dame Ellen Terry.

Dame Eileen will play Dame Ellen in the Barn Theatre at Small­hythe Place near Ten­ter­den (where Dame Ellen lived for many years un­til her death in 1928) this Satur­day evening.

The one-woman show sees Dame Eileen recre­ate some of Ellen Terry’s fa­mous per­for­mances of Shake­speare’s hero­ines.

Dame Ellen’s lec­tures on the roles led Dame Eileen – a mul­ti­award-win­ning stage and tele­vi­sion ac­tress – to cre­ate a play that show­cased Terry’s im­mense tal­ent and ex­pert knowl­edge of Shake­speare’s women.

‘Ellen Terry with Eileen Atkins’ sees her per­form a dozen parts – from Vi­ola to Vo­lum­nia. The one-woman show has pre­vi­ously re­ceived rave re­views.
