The Third Stage Company presents the next production in their smash-hit season, Elephant Sighs, written by Ed Simpson and directed by Don Eitner. Not long after moving to the small Pennsylvania town of Randolphsburg, uptight lawyer Joel Bixby is invited by Leo Applegate, an avuncular total stranger, to join a group of men who meet regularly in a ramshackle room in an old building located on a back alley in town. As an increasingly anxious Joel is swept up in the strange lives of the members, he struggles to figure out exactly who these guys are and why they’ve all come together. The more time he spends with them, the more certain Joel becomes that each of them are just as lost as he is. As the evening progresses, however, the men help each other – and Joel – confront and deal with their own disappointments until, finally, the mysterious reason for their gathering is revealed.
