Book Elephant Man, The Tickets at the Theatre Royal Haymarket, London

About Elephant Man, The

“A Giant of a play!” - Clive Barnes, New York Post

Bernard Pomerance’s acclaimed play is based on the brief life of John Merrick. Abandoned as a child and shunned by society the horribly deformed Merrick survives as a freak show attraction until a famous young doctor rescues him from his life on the streets. Evolving from a sensational object of pity to the urbane and witty favourite of the aristocracy and literati, his belief that he can become a man like any other is a dream tragically never realised.

The Elephant Man is still as powerful and contemporary as when it first received critical acclamations for the 1979 Broadway production, winning all major drama awards including three Tonys, three Obies, the Drama Desk Award and the New York Drama Critics award.

Creative First present this new production, directed by their founder Bruce Guthrie, following their sell out runs of Someone Who’ll Watch Over Me (Edinburgh Festival) and The Long and The Short and The Tall (Pleasance Theatre).
