The Elephant Man
by Bernard Pomerance,
directed by Lora Lee Ecobelli
Based on the life of John Merrick, who lived in London during the latter part of the nineteenth century.
“The Elephant Man” a tragically deformed young man, is found abandoned and helpless. He’s admitted for observation to Whitechapel, a prestigious London hospital and under the care of a famous young doctor, who educates him and introduces him to London society. Merrick changes from a sensational object of pity to the urbane and witty favorite of the aristocracy and literati. But his belief that he can become a man like any other is a dream never to be realized.
