Patricia Hartshorne is an award-winning solo performer in theatre, cabaret, stand-up, and after-dinner venues. She is based in Manchester.

From 2003, she toured widely – to California and Dublin, throughout the UK, including twice to Northern Ireland. Since the death in 2010 of her partner and Technical Director, Michael Elphick, Patricia has continued to work alone as GlovesOff.

An experienced actress and writer, she creates her own material, but also includes in her repertoire a mix of straight and comic songs, including some in French and German. With Michael Elphick, she co-wrote and toured five full-length one-woman theatre shows:

LATE-NIGHT CABARET, A BIT IN THE AFTERNOON, ME AND MARLENE, ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE and ABSOLUTE PANTS

MICHAEL ELPHICK

As Technical Director, Michael brought many skills to the company, as well as his sense of humour, ingenuity, professionalism and presence of mind – whatever the challenge. For Patricia, his inspiration is still very much at work, and the courage and determination he displayed, working up until the last two months of his life, a reminder that anything is possible.
