Ella’s debut play has been nominated in the category ‘Outstanding Achievement in an Affiliate Theatre’.  It premiered in the Downstairs theatre at Hampstead last year and has transferred to the main house there and will open on 19th March.

It is described as ‘a powerfully provocative vision of a dystopian future, questioning the value we place on one another, whether knowledge really is power, and if love truly can conquer all.’

The Laurence Olivier Awards are annually presented by The Society of London in recognition of achievements in commercial British theatre. The awards were established as the Society of West End Theatre Awards in 1976, and, renamed in 1984 in honour of English actor Lord Olivier.
