Tony Award-winning and Drama Desk winner, The Elephant Man, is based on the true story of the “elephant man,” so-called because of his hideous deformity. Its powerful and moving story chronicles the life of John Merrick, detailing his desperate existence in a Victorian freak show to his days as the toast of London high society. Pomerance weaves Merrick’s tale into a parable on beauty, innocence and human dignity.
