The play chronicles the true story of John (Joseph) Merrick, treated first as a fairground freak because of his hideously, repulsively deformed body and later exploited more subtly by Victorian society. As a carnival attraction, Merrick is known only as ‘The Elephant Man’. Merrick is discovered by a young doctor, Treves. Treves provides him with a home in the London Hospital where Merrick is cared for well but also shrewdly used for fund-raising. Merrick is then introduced to high society and becomes perplexed at the often hypocritical Victorian values.

cast: Rex Harder, Michael Burger, Victor Trevino, Rick Aragon, Edwardo Suarez-Healy, Alexandria Conroy, Krystal Kohler, Joseph Gomez
