"Ellen's passion for helping new writers and companies get their projects off the ground is completely inspiring. She's also fun to work with, and really dependable when the going gets tough. No better producer to have on a production."
Dave Florez / Playwright
"She isn't afraid to provide the opportunity for new artists or companies, but also programmes financially rewarding and successful work."
Rachel Pulham / Digital media (Marketing) at Luton Culture
"Ellen Waghorn is one of the most inspiring and open producers I have worked with. She has a real passion for supporting emerging talent from a diverse background. "
Addie Akinrinade / Festival Director, Producer & Actor
"Ellen gets my writing. Quicker than anyone else. Even when my 'plot' and characters are still evolving she shares my vision, is full of great ideas, constructive critique and encouragement. I think she might be psychic. She also understands this theatre business. For a new writer that is invaluable. Her energy, enthusiasm, integrity and talent will do the rest."
Mo Purdie / Winner of ScriptLab 2016 'Yer Own Kind'
"Ellen has been a joy to work alongside over the last few years and we hugely value her contribution to the growth of NGYT. Her energy, humour, understanding and relentless faith in artists are what make Ellen the lady she is and for that, we are truly grateful."
