Practitioner focus: Marianne Elliott


Marianne Elliot, a suggested set practitioner on the Eduqas syllabus, is a highly acclaimed and multi-award winning contemporary British theatre director, probably best known for her National Theatre productions, War Horse (2007), The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime (2012) and Angels in America (2018). She has recently directed a groundbreaking performance of Stephen Sondheim's Company, which saw a female actor in the (usually male) lead role.
