The Elephant Man

by Bernard Pomerance, directed by Lisa Tremarco

Wed 16th - Fri 18th July at 7.45pm in the Ron Barber Studio Theatre
Saturday 19th July at 2.00pm

The true story of John Merrick, treated first as a fairground freak because of his hideously, repulsively deformed body and later exploited more subtly by Victorian society.  He is befriended by a young doctor who provides him with a home in the London Hospital where Merrick is shrewdly used for fund-raising.  He is introduced to high society and is trapped by Victorian values so incongruous to his reality.  Even those who love him can’t help him and he dies from his horrible affliction.

Tickets: £8 ( £6 concessions - students, oap etc)
