ELAINE SMALL makes her Chicago debut in EL Stories after moving here from Los Angeles. While in L.A., she acted at Whitefire Theatre and in a commercial for University Medical. Prior to living in California, Elaine went to Illinois State University where she majored in acting and was fortunate to be cast in such roles as Linda in Talk Radio and Moretta in The Rover. Special thanks to the Waltzing Mechanics for bringing her back to the acting scene and to her family, friends, Lee, and her pooch, Stella, for all the love and support.
