    See All Times
    Directed by Jane Jennings, THE ELEPHANT MANS is set in Victorian England 1884. John Merrick, grossly disfigured by a rare disease, is rescued from a carnival where he had been exploited. Discovered by a young doctor, he is taken to the London Hospital where his condition is studied, & where he is given refuge. Though initially repulsed by his appearance, his doctor & other visitors become his first friends, discovering the intelligent & sensitive soul within. He begins to see himself as fully human, deserving of love & respect.

    Timothy Schumann stars as John Merrick with Leah O’Hara as Mrs. Kendal, Michael Pillsbury as Porter, & Richard Maurer as Cellist. Cast in multiple roles are: Ben Kendall, Dale Mezzacappa, Elliott Rotman, Ilana Brookshier, Michael Tarringer, & Nick Lutwyche.
