HandleBards Orange Wheel Icon


Ellice studied English and Theatre Studies at university, before forming the theatre company Breach with her two friends. They tend to make work where the characters’ names are the same as the actors’, so she’s well aware all her credits look made up and like a collection of children’s books.


Ellice’s credits include Artemisia in IT’S TRUE, IT’S TRUE, IT’S TRUE (Breach) and Girl/Mother in SOME PEOPLE TALK ABOUT NOTHING (Barrel Organ). She has also played Ellice in THE DRILL (Breach), Ellice in TANK (Breach), Ellice in THE BEANFIELD (Breach) and Ellice in THE HALF-ACRE (Breach).

My Favourite Thing About The HandleBards:

Getting to share the adventure and the stage with this amazing theatrical, biking, girl band and pointing out every sheep we cycle past.

If Shakespeare Was Alive Today:

I’d bring a list of all the words he made up, and ask him to talk me through his workings “Elbow, eh? Tell me how you got there.”

The Biggest Adventure I've Ever Had:

Travelling impulsively to the island of Pag because the guide book we had said that the island had more sheep than people. Arriving, finding the island completely full so no camp spots or beds available and no spaces on buses and boats to leave again, so having to sleep on beaches and in bus stations for 3 days until we could get off. And not seeing a single sheep the whole time.
