THE REAL AND IMAGINED HISTORY OF THE ELEPHANT MAN
Running : 4 – 27 AUGUST 2017
'I AM THE MOST EXTRAORDINARY THING IN THIS MASSIVE CITY
AND YET WHEN YOU LOOK AT ME YOU CANNOT SEE ME'
Joseph Merrick, better known as the Elephant Man, is cast out. He survived circus ‘freak shows’ and the revulsion of a gawking public for years until a young doctor offered him asylum at the London Hospital in 1879.
This story has inspired multiple theatrical adaptations, novels and a film by David Lynch. Now the team behind Malthouse Theatre’s Picnic at Hanging Rock, director Matthew Lutton and playwright Tom Wright, reunite to create a poignant new work that uncovers empathy in a world that rejects difference.
