It is with great sadness that The Wardrobe Ensemble's The Last of the Pelican Daughters at Shoreditch Town Hall has been cancelled due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Thank you to everyone who has supported this show and bought tickets. We will be in touch with bookers directly. More information on what we have on offer whilst on lockdown can be found here.

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.

Developed with Complicité: supporting the next generation of theatre makers. The Wardrobe Ensemble are part of the Royal & Derngate’s Resident Ensemble programme.

The Independent
Whats On Stage

"A high-spirited show, by a young company who know what they’re doing."

"There is a moment in the show… that may be the most intensely brilliant three minutes at the Edinburgh Fringe this year."
