Elise Heaven: She’s a Good Boy
Elise is called pretty the same amount of times as being called sir in an average week. If Elise had £1 for every time someone has asked “Are you the best man?” then Elise would have £2. Elise is often asked, “Are you a boy or a girl?” The answer to this question “No”.
An honest, moving and hilarious show exploring non-binary gender using Elise’s real life experiences. Elise is a Gloucestershire based theatre maker and an associate artist of Strike A Light as well as being a SPARK supported artist with Pegasus Theatre.
She’s A Good Boy is produced by Strike A Light and supported by Arts Council England, Pegasus Theatre, Battersea Arts Centre and Hawkwood College.
