2019 Season

The Elephant man

By BERNARD POMERANCE Directed By ROBYN COHEN

March 20th-April 14th

2 by 3 St Phillips copy.jpg

The Elephant Man is based on the life of John Merrick who lived in London during the latter part of the 19th Century. A horribly deformed young man who has been a freak attraction in traveling side shows, John is found abandoned and helpless and is admitted for observation to Whitechapel, a prestigious London hospital. Under the care of the famous young doctor, Fredrick Treves, Merrick is educated and introduced to London society. Through their eyes, he is changed from sensational object of pity, to an urbane and witty favorite of the aristocracy and literati. It his dream that he will become a man like any other…but unbeknownst to him, he exceeds even that.

“The Elephant Man is great. A giant of a play. Wonderful, moving and purely theatrical.”- Clive Barnes, The New York Post.

“An enthralling and luminous play. Haunting, splendid…”- Richard Eder, The New York Times.
