Last Weekend for The Elephant Man at SLCA

Joseph Merrick (Bill Douglas) and surgeon Frederick Treves (Anthony Halloway) discuss what it means for Merrick to have found a home and sanctuary at the London Hospital. 

We are all different, but compassion unites us! The Sand Lake Center for the Arts and Circle Theater Players presents The Elephant Man. The celebrated story of John Merrick, who developed a progressive and disfiguring disorder which left him living in pain and loneliness until, with help of a surgeon, he was granted sanctuary at a London Hospital where he was treated with respect and kindness, at the same time inspiring those who made his acquaintance with a new understanding of what it is to be human.  Winner of the 1979 Tony Award for best play, Bernard Pomerance’s story of civility, understanding and overcoming adversity allows the audience to look past our individual differences and to better help us embrace one another. Final Weekend Show times: June 6, 7 and 8 at 8PM and June 9 at 2:30PM. $18 Adult, $10 under 18. For reservations, go online to or call 518-674-2007.  The Elephant Man is produced by special arrangement with Samuel French Inc New York, New York.
