With a face that shouts "Xmas" but a soul that screams "Chanukah", Rachel Creeger has always felt like she has a foot in two worlds. Winner of the Best Comedy Award at the Greater Manchester Fringe 2017, It’s No Job For A Nice Jewish Girl enjoyed a sell-out debut Edinburgh Festival Fringe run in 2017, a successful UK tour in 2018 and triumphant return to the Fringe. It is a solo stand up comedy show from the writer of An Insomniac's Guide To Ambulances about rebellion and the drive to fit in, with a bit about being a pop star.

Rachel Creeger is the only orthodox Jewish comic on the UK circuit and resident compere of Comedy Upstairs at the Adam & Eve. She’s also an award winning comedian, director and writer, with credits including West End and touring shows. As heard on BBC Radio London and BBC 3CR, Rachel was a script associate on Radio 4 sketch comedy 2525.

Support act: Philip Simon (BBC Comedy Award Nominee, writer for BBC TV and Radio, winner of UK Jewish Comedian of the Year)

On first glance, we can seem so different from one another, but look a little closer and you’ll find we all have something in common.

Narissa the rabbit is new to the field and all the other rabbits are busy doing their rabbit things. So, Narissa sets off to find a friend. Everyone seems so very different to her. Freddy the frog, Astrid the Ant and Burton the bee don’t seem anything like a rabbit. But can they really be that different from her? Finding things in common and building unlikely friendships, interactive storytelling and vibrant characters combine in this fun, FREE, family event.

Please note these showings are at venues near Elephant and Castle and not at the Blue Elephant. The event is free but booking is encouraged to reserve your space. You can book via Tickets Ignite here

A boy experiences the loss of his mother. Instead of speaking about it, he picks up a guitar. A girl experiences the loss of her father. She wants to speak about it – but can’t find the words.

A play with sound and music, The Wolf Inside Me speaks to us of finding our own way through grief and sadness. Rooted in South East London and seen through the eyes of teenagers, it’s a captivating and creative reframing of loss and hope.

The Wolf Inside Me has been commissioned by Blue Elephant Theatre’s Youth Board members. It was created by Sepy Baghaei in response to a brief set by young participants and then chosen for research and development at the Blue Elephant after participants met shortlisted applicants.

The Wolf Inside Me is presented as a work-in-progress performance.
