Ellen Robertson has recently filmed the BBC One Agatha Christie drama THE PALE HORSE and the BBC Three series IN MY SKIN. She will be appearing in the London transfer of SNOWFLAKE by Mike Bartlett at the Kiln Theatre over the Christmas period. Ellen starred in the Oxford run of the show last year. The show, and Ellen, received stellar reviews. ★★★★★ – The Times, ★★★★ – The Guardian, ★★★★ – Financial Times.

Ellen and her comedy partner, Charly Clive, have just finished their second sold-out run of their debut show ‘Britney’ at the Battersea Arts Centre. ‘Britney’ first appeared at the Edinburgh Fringe, before going to the VAULT Festival in 2017, where it was recommended by The Guardian, London Evening Standard and Time Out.

As a writer, Ellen’s first play ‘Nesting’ was produced at the Watermill Theatre in 2017, before going on tour. She has recently written and starred in an episode of new web series ‘Post Coital’, alongside Will Attenborough. She is currently working on a play ‘Any Willing Provider’ about her time working as a GP Receptionist in Hackney, and ‘Benders’, the first scene of which was performed at the Arcola Theatre in May. 

Ellen and her writing and comedy partner, Charly Clive, are developing a scripted television project with Pure producers Drama Republic.

Ellen and Charly Clive took their debut show ‘Britney’ to the Battersea Arts Centre and Soho Theatre for several sold-out runs across 2018 and 2019. ‘Britney’ first appeared at the Edinburgh Fringe, before going to the VAULT Festival in 2017, where it was recommended by The Guardian, London Evening Standard and Time Out. Praise for Britney.

Hysterical... Britney have mastered a unique style of multi-format storytelling" ✭✭✭✭✭ Fringe Biscuit

“I have never been so moved by a Fringe performance before. Britney touched me in ways no comedy show has”, ✭✭✭✭✭ Edin Blogger

​"Taking a wholly unfunny subject and turning it in to a comedy cannot possibly be an easy task, but that’s exactly what Charly Clive and Ellen Robertson have done with Britney. Not only that, they’ve done it incredibly well... Britney is laugh-out-loud funny and told with love", ✭✭✭✭✭ Theatre Weekly

​"At once comforting as it is side-splittingly funny" ✭✭✭✭ EdFringe Review

She started life (not literally) at Cambridge University and was a member of comedy troupe The Footlights: ‘the most renowned sketch troupe of them all’.
