Elephant
developed by Abner Genece, Candace Joice & Neil Truglio (world premiere)

Directed by Benchmark Theatre Artistic Director Neil Truglio

Starring Nnamdi K. Nwankwo, Dan O’Neill & Courtney Esser

A modern and timely response to the Black Lives Matter movement and the shameful history of racism in America, Elephant explores the deep wounds of seeing and treating African Americans as “the other.” Based on the original writings by Frederick Treves’ of The Elephant Man, this world premiere explores the long standing racial divides that continue to plague this country, while the topic of race continues to be the “elephant in the room.”
