THE SENSIBLE DRESSER
Elsie's 2015 and 2016 one-woman show is inspired by her day job: dresser to the stars in the unpredictable world of costume. Set backstage in an opera house this is a comic, sexy and heartfelt piece. Having worked in television, opera and theatre, Elsie tells tales from her own and friends' careers. With some artistic license of course… These stories can’t possibly be true, can they?
