Eliza trained at LAMDA and has worked extensively all over the UK and West End. Her theatre work includes 'The Clandestine Marriage' at the Bristol Old Vic, 'Home and Beauty' and 'Dr. Faustus' at The Oxford Playhouse, 'Private Lives' and 'Top Girls' at The Leicester Haymarket and 'Noises Off' and 'Peer Gynt' at The Everyman Cheltenham. She has enjoyed touring throughout England in Shakespeare, Wilde, Coward, Maugham and Ayckborne. She starred in the one woman show 'Female Parts' at Worcester, which later transferred into The Arts Theatre, London. Eliza’s television work includes 'Constance Kent', 'Peak Practice', 'Casualty', 'The Inspector Lynley Mysteries', 'Tickets for the Titanic' and many more. She has done countless commercials and hundreds of radio plays.
Like many an actress, Eliza sat in theatre dressing rooms chatting, drinking coffee and stitching. This resulted in the production of her book, 'Traditional Beadwork', which is a collection of tapestry designs taken from the lovely places of interest she encountered on tour. This in turn sparked her talk based around a huge patchwork quilt of offcuts from theatre costumes; it is filled with theatre anecdotes, tales of a touring actress and includes a suitcase jam-packed with sassy and glamorous beadwork to pass round. Eliza is now a very experienced after dinner speaker, again travelling all over England to give her talks which have expanded to fit any occasion. They are fun mixtures of stories, poems and jokes to make up an entertaining and sparkling event.
