A sublime show that wonderfully embodies the spirit of the Fringe. Elf Lyons and Duffy share a magical chemistry; the synchronicity of silliness.


Welcome to Duffy and Elf Lyons' bank heist. A hysterically funny physical show with Visual Vernacular (VV), conducted in British Sign Language with some very violent live sound foley. Duffy and Elf are friends. Duffy signs, Elf doesn't. Elf speaks, Duffy doesn't. Let's see how this works out... This is a comedy show. This is a bank heist. This is a love story. You've never seen anything like it. Created by award-winning performers Duffy and Elf Lyons 'Praise her genius - and go' ***** (Telegraph). Edinburgh Comedy Award Best Show nominee.
