The Elephant Man (Matinee)

@ PACT centre for emerging artists Inc

$35 / $30

In Victorian London, a severely deformed man inspires those who meet him with his humour, wisdom and resolute spirit.

Joseph Merrick, a victim of rare skin and bone diseases, is the star freak attraction in travelling sideshows. Found abandoned and helpless, he is admitted to London's prestigious Whitechapel Hospital.

Young physician Frederick Treves discovers that Merrick has an intelligent mind and introduces him to Victorian London society. Merrick slowly evolves from an object of pity to an urbane and witty favourite of the aristocracy and literati, only to be denied his ultimate dream – to become a man like any other.

Winner of the 1979 Tony Award for 'Best Play' and 2015 Drama Desk Award for 'Best Revival of a Play', this classic play continues to inspire generations.
