THE ELEPHANT MAN
Crowds travel from across London to see the human spectacle that is the Elephant ManJohn Merrick, a man with severe disfigurement. But when the public opinion of freak shows sours, Merrick is left abandoned. The highly-renowned physician Frederick Treves takes interest in him, and Merrick finds himself admitted to the London Hospital. With the assistance of Treves, he is discovered by the exclusive world of the London aristocracy and becomes admired for his kindness and wit. Merrick has found a home; nevertheless, his happiness is limited: for how can he compare his hospital quarters against the freedoms of the normal man? Based on the true story of Joseph Carey Merrick, THE ELEPHANT MAN explores professional relationships, the humanity of outcasts, and our innate desire to fit in. Running March 5th-15th at the Underground Collaborative, Voices Found Repertory proudly presents THE ELEPHANT MAN, directed by Brandon C. Haut.
The Elephant Man is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French, Inc., a Concord Theatricals Company.
