http://www.snortland.com "Now That She's Gone" is a play that explores Ellen Snortland's often wacky, irreverent and sometimes torturous relationship with her Norwegian-American mother. "Now That She's Gone" has been described as a Lily Tomlin / Garrison Keillor / Eve Ensler hybrid... passionate, poignant and funny in turns. The play and performance have received rave reviews and standing ovations in California, New York, and Washington, D.C.

"Foie Gras" is a scene from a staged reading of "Now That She's Gone" at the Empire Arts Center located in downtown Grand Forks, ND in January of 2006. Ms. Snortland appeared on behalf of the Nordic Initiative to raise funds for their scholarship program in a tour that included the Cultural Center on the capitol grounds in Bismarck, North Dakota as well as in Minneapolis-St. Paul. "Now That She's Gone" is now available in a fully staged theatrical version, which garnered rave reviews at the 2008 New York International Fringe Festival.

Gloria Steinem says, "Ellen Snortland's one-woman play, 'Now That She's Gone,' is what good theater is all about. Her funny and tragic, particular and universal story sends us home with a better understanding of our own." Nora Dunn, actor, director and former SNL cast member says, "Ms. Snortland has written a show with great tenderness, surprise, and revelation. She delivers a poignant and completely original insight into the mother/daughter relationship that is deeply moving, and often profound." Ken Gruberman, Grammy award winner says, "I liked Ellen's play so much I married her!"
