The Elephant Man

The Elephant ManThe Elephant Man is based on the life of John Merrick, who lived in London during the latter part of the nineteenth century. A horribly deformed young man, who has been a freak attraction in traveling side shows, is found abandoned and helpless and is admitted for observation to Whitechapel, a prestigious London hospital. 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.

Murder Mistaken
by Janet Green
March 3-25, 2017
No one can weave a murder mystery better than the Brits, and this one is in the tradition of the great Agatha Christie and all the other mystery writers who followed in her footsteps. Observe the charming young conniver as he plots one victim’s murder and finds out that he made an error in judgment that may work to undo his final scheme. You’ll be on the edge of your seat. A needed change from the usual Holiday jingle bells!

Noises Off
by Michael Frayn
June 2-24, 2017
This outrageous and absolutely hilarious, send-up of theater people and all their shenanigans has become a staple of theaters all over the country and the Continent. The egotistical director, the alcoholic jaded old actor, the self-absorbed ingenue, the maniacal stage manager, and all the other characters that populate this zany farce are all there for your delight and enjoyment. It’s a treat. Don’t miss it.

Rapture, Blister, Burn
by Gina Gianfriddo
December 1- 23, 2017
The recent New York sensation is a hilarious and insightful look at sex, feminism, relationships, marriage, and a whole lot of other juicy subjects. It is also a re-assessment of our modern mores, seen through the eyes of three generations of women from the eras of Germaine Greer to Phyllis Schlaffley. An exciting evening awaits you with some wallops for laughs.
