The Last of the Pelican Daughters

Connaught Theatre

1 hour 10 mins

Live Events > Theatre

Sorry, there are no upcoming performances.
In folklore, pelican mothers feed their young on their own blood. In 2019, four sisters are trying to divide their mother’s house between them.

Joy wants a baby, Storm wants to be seen, Sage just wants to remember and Maya doesn’t want anyone to find out her secret. There’s a boot load of cheap prosecco, a whole ham from Waitrose and Dodo the yoga instructor boyfriend has made baba ganoush. Mum’s presence still seeps through the ceiling and the floors. The Pelican Daughters are home for the last time.

After the success of Education, Education, Education on the West End, The Wardrobe Ensemble grapple with family, inheritance and justice in this comedy about a family trying to come to terms with their mother’s death.

A Wardrobe Ensemble, Complicite and Royal & Derngate, Northampton co-production in association with Bristol Old Vic.

'A high-spirited show, by a young company who know what they’re doing.' The Independent
'There is a moment in the show… that may be the most intensely brilliant three minutes at the Edinburgh Fringe this year.'WhatsOnStage
