Navigate Up
THE ELEPHANT MAN
By Bernard Pomerance
Directed by Sanford Robbins
Thompson Theatre, Roselle Center for the Arts
Mar. 2 - Mar. 19, 2017

 

 

The moving tale of John Merrick, a passionate, artistic soul trapped in a body hideously disfigured by a horrifying rare disease. Named the “Elephant Man” in a touring freak show, he is rescued by a renowned surgeon and becomes the unlikely toast of London society.  A poignant look at disability, intolerance, and the gift of kindness, this Tony award winning play retains its power to shake us to our depths.

 

This production runs approximately 90 minutes with no intermission. The production contains theatrical haze and brief nudity.
