Elephant's Graveyard
An eye for an eye would make the whole world blind.-- Mahatma Gandhi

Popcorn! Peanuts! Relive the sights and sounds of a turn of the century circus!

The circus comes to Balagan Theatre in the WEST COAST PREMIERE of George Brants new and exciting play, ELEPHANTS GRAVEYARD.  When a struggling circus comes to a small town in Tennessee, things are shaping up to be a normal stop for the show. The train arrives, the animals and performers settle in, and the tent is constructed. Finally the ever popular parade ensues, but Mary, the circus prize elephant, panics and causes a catastrophe. Events careen towards a climax you wont believe as the townspeople seek revenge on Mary. Set in September of 1916, the play combines historical fact and legend, exposing the deep-seated American craving for spectacle, violence and revenge.

Elephant's Graveyard was awarded the David Mark Cohen National Playwriting Award from the Kennedy Center, a "Best New Play" citation from the Austin Critics' Table, a Playwrights Center Core Apprentice Workshop and the Keene Prize for Literature (one of the world's largest student literary prizes at $50,000).

This production marks the directorial debut of Balagan stage regular and Company Member, Jason Harber (Arabian NIghts, Othello, Marat/Sade, Picasso).  The show features the impressive ensemble talent of: Jose Amador, Ashley Bagwell, Sharon Barto, Christian D. Bell, Michael Blum, Banton Foster, Jake Groshong, Samuel Hagen, Ryan Higgins, Joanna Horowitz, Marty Ofsowitz, Allison Strickland, and Ray Tagavilla.
