The Hare's Corner Series in Marianne Elliott's Cultural Highlights, The Observer

The Hare's Corner Series features in Theatre Director Marianne Elliott's Cultural Highlights in The Observer New Review:

'I’ve been following the career of this artist who lives in south London, though I can’t really afford her work. She does massive beautiful oil paintings: they’re sometimes a view across a misty lake, street lamps in the distance or a park in London at night with that sort of sodium haze around it. There’s a big picture she did called The Hare’s Corner, which is light coming through a clearing in a wood. There’s something very mystical about her work; it’s beautifully detailed and there’s something mysterious about it. So a relatively mundane image turns into a kind of fairytale – the feel of it, the tone, the atmosphere, is like something extraordinary is about to happen. You can see stories in it.'

Born in London in 1966 and brought up in Stockport, Marianne Elliott studied drama at Hull University. After working at the Manchester Royal Exchange and the Royal Court, in 2005 she joined the National Theatre as associate director. There, she co-directed War Horse (2007) and directed The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time (2012), for which she won the 2013 Olivier award for best director; both plays later won Tony awards for their Broadway transfers. More recently, she directed Husbands & Sons (2015) and Angels in America (2017). This year, Elliott co-founded Harper & Elliott Productions with producer Chris Harper. Its first show, Heisenberg: The Uncertainty Principle, starring Anne-Marie Duff, opens on 3 October at Wyndham’s theatre, London.
