Unlikely Darlings

Unlikely Darlings

A Theatrical fairytale for the fierce hearted

Nonsuch Studios


Award winning comedians and Gaulier trained physical performers Helen Duff (as seen in BBC 2's The Mash Report/ BBC 3/ Holmes & Watson) and Elf Lyons (as seen on BBC 3/ Dave TV and 'The Stand Up Sketch Show' ITV2) unite in a beautiful and anarchic homage to the absurd life of cult surrealist Leanora Carrington. A runaway, writer, artist and anarchist who refused to be put in a box, Carrington escaped a mental institution via submarine, maried an ambassador to escape the Nazi's, and made omelettes with her own hair. Helen & Elf would like to take you into her world.

Through vivid and divine mine, clowning, puppetry and more, Duff and Lyons transport the audience into the mind of one of the most eccentric visionaries of the 20th century.
