Helen Duff & Elf Lyons: Unlikely Darlings

A theatrical fairytale for the fierce hearted.

Leanora Carrington was one of the most evocative and rebellious artists of the surrealist movement. A runaway, a writer, an artist and anarchist, Leanora Carrington refused to be put in a box. She escaped a mental institution via submarine, married an ambassador to escape the Nazis, and made omelettes with her own hair.

Helen Duff and Elf Lyons would like to take you into her world.

Through live music, mime, clowning, puppetry and entirely true stories, Duff and Lyons transport the audience into the divine and vivid mind of one of the most eccentric visionaries of the 20th century.
