"I am not an elephant! I am not an animal! I am a human being! I am a man!"

A timeless, moving, and utterly astounding play that won a Tony award and every other major achievement for Best Play of 1979, later starring John Hurt, Anthony Hopkins, Anne Bancroft and John Gielgud in the 1980 film version that received eight Oscar nominations. The Elephant Man is the true story of a remarkable man whose body, though hideously deformed, contains a remarkably sensitive, funny and intelligent being. 'Discovered' by a brilliant young doctor, Frederick Treves, John Merrick becomes the toast of society, patronized by lords, ladies, clergymen and celebrities who admired his gentleness, intelligence and deep faith. But Treves' and Merrick's belief that Merrick can become a man like any other is a dream never to be realized. Stunningly theatrical, this modern classic, laced with humor and pathos, explores the nature of courage, heroism, morality, and inner beauty.
