"The Elephant Man is a moving drama...it nests in the human heart." - Time Magazine.

"An enthralling and luminous play. Haunting, splendid..." - The New York Times.

The Elephant Man won the Drama Desk Award, the New York Drama Critics' Circle Award, and the Tony Award for Best Play in 1979. The play pre-dates David Lynch's film of the same name.

This award-winning play offers an intense look at John Merrick, a physically deformed Londoner of the late 1880s. It is now believed he suffered from Proteus Syndrome. Intense and sensitive, Merrick strives to be normal, even as he is viewed as a carnival freak and later a scientific celebrity by London's socialites. This deeply poignant story raises questions about charity, science, faith and with particular resonance to our own time, asks us to consider societal responsibility - what does it mean for citizens to be responsible for one another?
