Haymarket, London SW1Y 4HT
Monday – Saturday: 10am – 6.30pm
Following a highly-acclaimed, record-breaking run on Broadway, THE ELEPHANT MAN the play comes to the Theatre Royal Haymarket London for a strictly limited 12 week season from 19 May until 8 August.
Starring three-time Academy Award® nominee Bradley Cooper (American Sniper, American Hustle, Silver Linings Playbook), this new production of Bernard Pomerance’s Tony Award®-winning classic is directed by six-time Tony nominee Scott Ellis, and also stars Academy Award nominee and Emmy® Award winner Patricia Clarkson (“Six Feet Under”) and Alessandro Nivola (American Hustle).
Based on the real life of Joseph Merrick, THE ELEPHANT MAN tells the story of a 19th-century man (Cooper) who became a star of the traveling freak show circuit. When the renowned Dr. Treves (Nivola) takes Merrick under his care, he is astonished by the man’s brilliant intelligence, unshakable faith and, most of all, his resounding desire for love and understanding. He introduces Merrick to the beautiful actress Mrs. Kendal (Clarkson), who is deeply touched by this pure and genuine soul. As a complex friendship blossoms among the three, Treves and Kendal struggle to protect Merrick from a world of questionable intentions… and so begins a story of love as unique as “The Elephant Man” himself.
