Brighton Fringe: The Elephant Girls

Brighton Fringe: The Elephant Girls

An award-winning play brings the gripping tale of a 1920s all-female gang to the Brighton Fringe this May.

20 May 2017 –  26 May 2017 | Visit website

Clever, organized, devious & daring; The Elephant Girls stole from the rich and gave to themselves. This production at the Brighton Fringe this May tells the gripping story of the all-female gang that terrorized London for over 100 years. A fascinating piece of lost women's history, only recently brought to light, the play focuses on the 1920s when the gang was at the height of its power—and when the events took place which would come to mean its downfall.

Maggie Hale — the gang's suit-wearing, bloody-knuckled, girl-chasing “enforcer”— will tell you all. Who they were, what they did, how they got away with it, and how it all came crashing down. But should you trust the words of someone who’s made deception her stock-in-trade? Just how much are you sure you want to hear?
 
Wrapping issues of power, class, gender, and the nature of violence around the story of Maggie Hale, the show uses history to grapple with issues our society still struggles with today.

The Elephant Girls runs from 20—26 May at the Rialto Theatre as part of the Brighton Fringe. See the Fringe listings for booking and more information.
