The Elephant Man
by Bernard Pomerance
Directed by Jim Petosa
SEP 7 - 29, 2013

This Tony Award-winning drama offers an intense look at John Merrick, a physically deformed Londoner of the late 1880s. Intelligent and sensitive, he strives to be normal, even as he is viewed as a carnival freak and later a scientific celebrity by London’s socialites. This deeply poignant story raises questions about faith, science, charity, and with particular resonance for our time, asks us to consider societal responsibility—what does it mean for citizens to be responsible for one another?
