This Tony Award-winning drama offers an intense look at John
Merrick, a physically deformed Londoner of the late 1880s.
Intelligent and sensitive, he strives to be normal, even as he
is viewed as a carnival freak and later a scientific celebrity by
London's socialites. This deeply poignant story raises questions
about faith, science, charity, and with particular resonance
for our time, asks us to consider societal responsibility--what
does it mean for citizens to be responsible for one another?
