Marianne Elliott OBE

Award-winning Theatre Director and co-owner of Elliott & Harper Productions

Marianne Elliott has directed and produced a host of theatrical productions for the Royal Exchange and National Theatres before co-founding Elliott and Harper Productions in 2017.

Marianne has won numerous awards for her work including the Tony Award for Best Direction of a Play for the Broadway production of War Horse in 2011, along with co-director Tom Morris. In 2015, she won the Tony Award for Best Direction of a Play for a second time, winning for The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, which also won Best Play and Best Actor for Alex Sharp. For the same production, she won the Laurence Olivier Award for Best Director in 2013. She has won Best Director at the London Evening Standard Theatre Awards twice: first in 2006 for Pillars of the Community and again in 2018 for directing the Stephen Sondheim musical Company in a production at the Gielgud Theatre.

What I remember about Stockport Grammar very, very fondly is that it was like a kind of opening of the door and a broadening of the mind.  I had some amazing teachers.

Elliott was appointed Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) in the 2018 Birthday Honours for services to theatre.
