THE ELEPHANT MAN (Oct 21 – Nov 12, 2005)

by Bernard Pomerance
Guest Production: Five Bob Equity Co-op

"Sometimes I think my head is so big becase it is so full of dreams."
1884. John Merrick is rescued from the brutalities of a London freak show. As this gentle monstrosity becomes the toast of Victorian society, his ambitious saviours are confronted with the deformities of their own souls. A searching classic of the contemporary stage.
"A fiercely uplifting and brutally sad play. A triumph." Boulder Weekly
