Barn Theatre Production Graphic

The Elephant Man

by Bernard Pomerance
Directed by Mervyn Lloyd
4th – 11th May 1985

The true story of John Merrick, a sensitive and intelligent man whose body was so deformed that he was exploited, first as a fairground freak but later in more subtle ways by high society and well-meaning philanthropy. Attempts to help him are frustrated by suffocating Victorian hypocrisy. A compassionate evocation of suffering nobly borne.
