  • The Elephant Man by Bernard Pomerance

    ErskinevilleTheatre | August 22 - 25, 2018

    In the 19th century, Joseph Merrick, a victim of rare skin and bone diseases, is the star freak attraction in travelling sideshows. Found abandoned and helpless, he is admitted to London's prestigious Whitechapel Hospital.

    Young physician Frederick Treves discovers that Merrick has an intelligent mind and introduces him to Victorian London society. Merrick slowly evolves from an object of pity to an urbane and witty favourite of the aristocracy and literati, only to be denied his ultimate dream – to become a man like any other.

    The forthcoming production, directed by the acclaimed Debbie Smith, features a wonderful cast with Harley Connor as John Merrick; Nicholas Gledhill as Frederick Treves; Melanie Robinson as Mrs Kendall; William Jordan as Ross (Merrick's nasty manager); Marty O'Neill as Carr Gomm; Peter Hayes as Bishop How; Denise Kitching as Miss Sandwich; Madeleine Solomon; Claire Brew and Eoin O'Sullivan.

    Winner of the 1979 Tony Award for 'Best Play' and 2015 Drama Desk Award for 'Best Revival of a Play', this classic play continues to inspire generations.
