Elephant Girls - Celebrate 100 Performance

The Elephant Girls turns 100!

Come see "The Elephant Girls" and help us celebrate 100 performances of this multi-award winning show. 


"The Elephant Girls" premiered at the Ottawa Fringe Festival in 2015 where it broke box office records, won rave reviews, and all the top awards. The show has been touring and captivating audiences in Canada and overseas ever since. Now as Margo MacDonald reaches an amazing one hundred performances of the show, we look forward to presenting "The Elephant Girls" in its hometown to celebrate. 

Come see the show, then stay for drinks and a Q&A session with creator/performer Margo MacDonald and director Mary Ellis.

“Without doubt, they were the most notorious girl gang Britain’s ever seen.” (Brian McDonald, Gangs of London)

Clever, organized, devious & daring; they stole from the rich and gave to themselves. This is the riveting story of the all-female gang which terrorized London for over 100 years.

“I’ll tell you something special I ain’t never told no one before; I’ll tell you the truth.” (Maggie Hale, The Elephant Girls)

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 just how much are you sure you want to hear?

Captivating and repelling, humorous and terrifying; you won’t be able to look away.
