Elizabeth produced the Online Stage full-cast production of E.M. Forster’s Howards End, which is now available at Audible. She also narrates the novel, alongisde an excellent cast, including Amanda Friday as Helen Schlegel, Arielle Lipshaw as Margaret Schlegel, and Steve Gough as Henry Wilcox.
“Only connect!” E. M. Forster’s classic 1910 novel follows the lives and loves of the Schlegel sisters, Margaret and Helen, as they attempt to make connections with members of two very different families: the conservative, wealthy Wilcoxes, and the working-class Basts.
Elizabeth performs the role of Christine Linde in The Online Stage production of Henrik Ibsen’s classic drama A Doll’s House, now available at Audible!
A Doll’s House, published in 1879, was the earliest of Ibsen’s “social dramas”, and the first of his works to attract attention outside of Scandinavia. The central theme of the play is a woman’s right to individual self-development, and represents, as humourist Stephen Leacock observed of many Ibsen plays, “a profound problem stated but not solved”.
The latest dramatic reading produced by The Online Stage is Anne Bronte’s enthralling novel The Tenant of Wildfell Hall, now available at Audible. Elizabeth plays the flirtatious Annabella Wilmot in this full-cast dramatization, featuring Ben Lindsey-Clark, Amanda Friday, and Craig Franklin in the leading roles.
A young widow arrives at Wildfell Hall with her son, Arthur. Clouded in mystery, Helen Graham soon becomes the object of much scandalous gossip. Refusing to believe any of it, Gilbert Markham eventually discovers her dark past.
Elizabeth performs the role of Marilla Cuthbert in L.M. Montgomery’s beloved classic Anne of Green Gables, which has been released by The Online Stage and is available at Audible. Narrated by Susan Iannucci, and performed by a full cast, this is the first in a series. The next book, Anne of Avonlea, is currently in production – with Elizabeth as Marilla – and will be released later this year.
The always delightful and entertaining classic Anne of Green Gables is performed by actors from The Online Stage! Written in 1908, for all ages, by Canadian author Lucy Maud Montgomery. Anne Shirley is an 11-year-old orphan adopted by a middle-aged brother and sister, Matthew and Marilla Cuthbert. They had wanted to adopt a boy to help with their farm on Prince Edward Island in the fictional town of Avonlea. Matthew persuades Marilla to give Anne a chance. Anne is a handful, and they fall in love with her.
Elizabeth’s latest release is The Bronte Sisters: A Collection of Poems, produced by Voices of Today and released by Spoken Realms. Elizabeth reads Charlotte Bronte’s poems, while Amanda Friday performs Anne Bronte and Eva Davis is Emily Bronte. You can listen to a sample of this recording at Audible.
While the novels of the Bronte sisters are much beloved, their beautiful works of poetry often go unnoticed. This collection contains all their poetical works, pieced together by Charlotte, who provides illuminating commentary on her dear sisters’ words.
The collection was first published under the names Currer, Ellis, and Acton Bell.
The latest release from The Online Stage is now available at Audible: E.M. Forster’s classic novel A Room With a View, narrated by Elizabeth and performed by a full cast! Elizabeth also served as editor and producer of this audiobook, and will be producing and narrating Forster’s Howards End later this year as well.
“If Miss Honeychurch ever takes to live as she plays, it will be very exciting both for us and for her.”
Lucy Honeychurch is a young English girl abroad in Italy for the first time and is ready to experience all the beauty, art, and romance it has to offer. She is hampered by the oppressive attentions of her chaperone, her prim cousin Charlotte, as well as the presence of a substantial British expatriate and tourist community in Florence.
Yet when she meets the free-thinking Emersons and finds herself attracted to young George Emerson, she must decide whether the life that she has laid out for herself – including marriage to priggish Cecil Vyse – is what she really wants.
Elizabeth is pleased to announce the release of Arthur Conan Doyle’s The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes, produced by Voices of Today, and now available at Audible! This is a completely unique all-female production, with Linda Barrans as Dr. Watson, Cate Barratt as Sherlock Holmes, Grace Keller Scotch as all the female characters, and Elizabeth as all of the remaining male characters, from Inspector Lestrade to Grimsby Roylott, to the King of Bohemia. There are twelve classic stories in this wonderful collection, including “A Scandal in Bohemia,” “The Red-Headed League,” and “The Adventure of the Speckled Band” (Elizabeth’s personal favorite).
