Coming up in 2018/2019, Elly will be directing Calamity West's In the Canyon for Jackalope Theatre and Yen by Anna Jordan for Raven Theatre.
Elly recently took part in the Goodman Theatre's PLaywright's Unit, directing Nigel O'Hearn's The Woyzeck Experiment.
Earlier this year Elly directed You for Me for You by Mia Chung for Sideshow Theatre, at Victory Gardens:
"Director Elly Green’s staging unfolds with wit and elegance, anchored by strong performances from the six-member ensemble" - 3.5 stars, Kerry Reid, Chicago Tribune

"Roberts and company fill Samuel Adamson's heady, dense adaptation of Henrik Ibsen's story of immigration, capitalism, and cultural revolution with plenty of heat and tension … There's exceptional work on display up and down the massive cast …”— Chicago Reader
