Elf Lyons sometimes wants to kill her mother. Do other people ever feel like this? She’s made a show to find out.

In Pelican, Elf uses her unique blend of storytelling, surrealism and brute honesty to pull apart her love/hate relationship with her mother to comedically explore the age-old fear of turning into your mother, and the pressures to have it all as young woman. A brand new fierce, sassy and hilarious show from the L’Ecole Philippe Gaulier graduate and Feminist Times' One To Watch.


"Enthusiastically peculiar...endearingly eccentric...showing sexy, nerdy and funny aren't mutually incompatible" - Chortle 2015

"Lyons is endearingly eccentric on so many levels. She has a knack for fostering the desire to be her new best friend" Fest Magazine 2015

"A stand-out Fringe show from a vibrant and energetic performer...packed full of sexiness, nerdiness...with an excellent astronaut striptease" **** The Skinny 2015
