Following last year's Edinburgh and London sell-out hit The Wicker Woman, critically acclaimed trio Population: 3 return with an all-new comedy spectacle. Once again they are joined by award-winning director David Sant (Peepolykus) to create a blistering circus of silliness.
Inspired by Seventies cult film The Elephant Man, Population:3 bring you The Elephant Woman – the tragic tale of a woman fathered by an elephant. No end of historical research has been ignored and every fact disregarded to create this compelling document of Victorian London, complete with prostitutes, surgeons, freaks, Queen Victoria, and a woman with a bag on her head.
Directed by David Sant (Peepolykus). Performed by Barunka O'Shaugnessy, Lucy Montgomery and James Bachman.
