The Elephant Man

The Elephant Man



“If I could reach form pole to pole Or grasp the ocean with my span
I must be measured by my soul The mind’s the standard of the man.”

Inspired by the iconic David Lynch film and following a critically acclaimed launch at Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the tale of the elephant man returns in a stunning new stage adaptation. With numerous award nominations, Elephant Man tells the true story of the fabled Joseph Merrick in a production that is ‘profoundly unforgettable’, ‘uplifting’, and ‘beautiful’.

Abandoned as a child, the horribly deformed Joseph, played with “startling subtlety” by Daniel Chrisostomou, survives as a freak-show attraction and medical marvel. But as he sits silently under the stares of London’s high society, it is the world around him that appears grotesque.

Nominated for an Amnesty Freedom of Expression Award, Elephant Man will be touring nationally in Autumn 2014 following a sell-out run at Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

“Elephant Man” is one of the must-see shows of the year so far and if I could give it 10 stars I would but even that wouldn’t be enough praise for such an amazing, compelling, thought provoking and unforgettable production.”
