Catherine Curzon is a historian of the 18th century.


Catherine’s first play, Being Mr Wickham, premiered to sell-out audiences in 2019. An internationally acclaimed livestream in 2021 was followed by a UK tour, starring co-writer Adrian Lukis. She has spoken at venues including Kenwood House, Wellington College, the Royal Pavilion, the National Maritime Museum, and Dr Johnson’s House.


Her work has been featured online by Vanity Fair, BBC News, BBC History Extra and the Daily Express, and in publications including All About History, Who Do You Think You Are?, and Jane Austen’s Regency World. Further afield, her expertise has been featured by Town & Country, Elle Australia, and Der Bund, among others.


Catherine holds a Master’s degree in Film. She lives in Yorkshire atop a ludicrously steep hill with a rakish gent, a relaxed cat, and an excitable dog. She writes for Orion as Ellie Curzon.
