“THE ELEPHANT MAN”
Speak The Speech Theatre Company will produce Bernard Pomerance’s play The Elephant Man directed by Dan Reichel. The Elephant Man tells the story of a 19th-century British man John Merrick (Ken Bieder) whose severe disfigurement made him a star of the traveling freak show circuit. When the renowned Dr. Treves (Anthony Auriemma) takes Merrick under his care at the London Hospital, he discovers that beneath this shocking exterior lies a brilliant mind and an unshakable faith. Soon all of Victorian high society becomes fascinated by Merrick, especially the beautiful actress Mrs. Kendal (Monica Wolfkill). But with his new life comes new complexity… and as Merrick’s condition grows more severe, a ‘normal’ life begins to seem impossible.
