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 wants to be paid, Maya doesn't want anyone to find out her secret and Granny's in a wheelchair on day release. Mum's presence still seeps through the ceiling and the floors. The Pelican Daughters are home for the last time.

The Wardrobe Ensemble's play The Last of the Pelican Daughters is a comedy about four sisters trying to come to terms with their mother's death. It combines the company's trademark irreverent humour and lovable characters to tackle the idea of what it means for young people to grapple with inheritance, loss and justice.

The Last of the Pelican Daughters was first staged at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2019.

Press Quotes

'Just wonderful. The show captures the little rifts and rivalries that exist between the sisters and it has an ace up its sleeve in the form of a gorgeous, heart-flooding movement sequence'
