The Elephant Man

July 25 - August 5 | Nikos Stage
2012 Season

Author: Pomerance, Bernard
Director: Ellis, Scott

From a desperate existence in a Victorian freak show to his days as the toast of London high society, the life of John Merrick, the Elephant Man, has fascinated the world for well over a century. Though his disfigurement brought notoriety, it was his unblemished inner humanity that most astonished those around him, compelling examinations of their own prejudices and beliefs. Shattering our illusions of normalcy, Pomerance weaves Merrick’s tale into a parable on beauty, innocence, and human dignity.
