She’s A Good Boy

Event Information

Wed 6 February

Running time: 60 mins

Written and performed by Elise Heaven

Elise is called pretty the same amount of times as being called sir in an average week.

If Elise had £1 for every time someone has asked ‘Are you the best man?’ then Elise would have £2.

Elise is often asked, ‘Are you a boy or a girl?’ the answer to this question is: ‘No’.

An honest, moving and hilarious show exploring non-binary gender using Elise’s real life experiences.

Very funny, emotional and thought provoking‘ Audience comment
