If I could reach from pole to pole, Or grasp the ocean with my span, I must be measured by my soul, 

The mind’s the standard of the man.


The Fourth Monkey Ensemble will be touring their critically acclaimed Elephant Man in the Autumn of 2014. 




Inspired by the iconic David Lynch film and following a critically acclaimed launch at Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the tale of the elephant man returns in a stunning new stage adaption. With numerous award nominations, Elephant Man tells the true story of the fabled Joseph Merrick in a production that is ‘profoundly unforgettable’, ‘uplifting’, and ‘beautiful’.

Abandoned as a child, the horribly deformed Joseph, played with “startling subtlety” by Daniel Chrisostomou, survives as a freak-show attraction and medical marvel. But as he sits silently under the stares of London’s high society, it is the world around him that appears grotesque.

Nominated for an Amnesty Freedom of Expression Award, Elephant Man will be touring nationally in Autumn 2014 following a sell out run at Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

Elephant Man will be touring nationally in Autumn 2014. For more information on booking the show, please contact patrick@fourthmonkey.co.uk / 07949 380043.
