Joy, Storm, Sage and Maya Pelican have returned to their childhood home.

They’re celebrating what would have been their mum’s birthday, if their mum wasn’t dead.

They’ve brought their partners (where still applicable), a ‘shit-ton of shitty Prosecco’, and a whole lot of emotional baggage with them. Also, some real baggage (they’re staying the night).

Created by Complicité associate company The Wardrobe Ensemble, The Last of the Pelican Daughters is a comedy about family, grief, and what and how we inherit.

By arrangement with Nick Hern Books
