Elf Lyons (Feminist Times' One to Watch) sometimes wants to kill her mother. So she's made a show about it. Do other people feel like this? A recent graduate from L'Ecole Philippe Gaulier, Elf explores the age-old fear of turning into your mother and what it means to have it all... Media Eye Rising Star 2016. 'Enthusiastically peculiar... sexy, nerdy and funny' (Chortle.co.uk). 'Endearingly eccentric... She has a knack for fostering the desire to be her new best friend' (Fest). 'A stand-out Fringe show from a vibrant and energetic performer' (Skinny).
