“We have shared paths with Elena in the small theatre world on many occasions including going to the same school, Philippe Gaulier. Most recently Patricia and Elena shared the same role, Pigeon, in the play Muckers (by the brilliant artist, Caroline Horton) that Patricia had to leave to give birth to her second child. One of the many joyful experiences of this show, and there were many, was to get to know Elena’s professional brilliance as she prepared Patricia to get back into Pigeon’s shoes!”
