Tracy Notes About This Show
We have the CATHEDRAL PROP available - it has a wood base, and is a paper sculpture designed to assemble in sections held together with magnets, so it can be disassembled for the next performance. We can also provide numerous period circus and side show performers outfits - please inquire.
Challengesduring the course of the story, Merrick works on a model of a cathedral which becomes more complete as we watch
A horribly deformed young man, victim of rare skin and bone diseases, he has become the star freak attraction in traveling side shows. Found abandoned and helpless, he is admitted to London's prestigious Whitechapel hospital. Under the care of celebrated young physician Frederick Treves, Merrick is introduced to London society and slowly evolves from an object of pity to an urbane and witty favorite of the aristocracy and literati only to be denied his ultimate dream, to become a man like any other.
