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 is: No.
She’s A Good Boy is a solo show in which Elise shares their real life experiences of non-binary gender in a striking performance style which verges on stand-up. Moments from the hilarious to the heartbreaking are recreated using physical performance, live music and comedy songs, to share the challenges of a society that is conditioned to see only masculine or feminine.
The story is told with energy throughout- from seahorses to spiderman socks, tributes to disgruntled local councillors and wedding day disasters.
An honest, moving and hilarious show exploring gender and identity.

There are two entrances to the Old Fire Station: 40 George Street via the foyer, and on Gloucester Green via the shop. Both are step-free. If you are coming to a show, we ask that you use the George Street entrance, as the Gloucester Green entrance is not always open.
There is level entry to the foyer of the Old Fire Station, and step-free access to the main Theatre (where most shows take place) and Studio space via lift. All spaces in the building are wheelchair-accessible via lift apart from the Theatre balcony and the Loft. If an event is in the Loft, this will be clearly stated on the event’s web page.
If you are a wheelchair user attending a sit-down show, space will be reserved for you. If you are attending a standing gig, please contact us (call Alex on 01865 263980 or e-mail email@example.com) and we will talk with you about your needs.
There are six steps leading up to the Loft space. If you would like to discuss hire of the space, or any of the events taking place in the Loft, please get in touch.
There is an accessible toilet on the ground floor, accessible via platform lift. Other toilets are in the basement (accessible via lift).
All types of assistance and guide dogs are welcome at the Old Fire Station. It would be great if you could let us know in advance if you will be bringing a working dog to any performances – just e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will warn visitors on the website and in the foyer of the venue if a performance is going to contain strobe lighting. If lighting affects you, and you have any concerns, please call Alex on 01865 263980 or e-mail email@example.com.
