Merrick, The Elephant Man is the moving, poetic and ultimately uplifting story of the life of Joseph Merrick. Fusing burlesque, new circus and physical theater, Merrick, The Elephant Man is a highly physical, one-man tour-de-force version of this classic story recharged for the 21stCentury. Often the most remarkable stories are the true ones, and the story of Joseph Carey Merrick is certainly that. The journey of this astonishing man, from an object of curiosity and social revulsion to celebrity, Merrick's life and tragic destiny is as relevant today as it ever was.
