Ellen plays Irish farm girl JOSIE HOGAN. This tour de force  role is a non-stop challenge for the actress as it is extremely demanding  emotionally. The performer remains on stage for almost the entire three hours.

This part was a turning point in Ellen's acting career. People started to take notice of the "statuesque actress brimming with talent who can convey so much with a single expression".
