1945. Dresden, Germany.
Lizzie, her mother and an elephant from the zoo, flee the Allied fire-bombing in the end-game of the Second World War.
It is Lizzie’s story – but Marlene, the elephant is the heroine. Plodding, obdurate, opportunistic, load-bearing, indestructible, cheering – Marlene embodies the stubbornness of the human will and how it will do everything to survive.
“This is masterful storytelling by all concerned and a gem of a standout performance”
– StageTalk Magazine
An Elephant in the Garden is the new adaptation by Simon Reade from Michael Morpurgo’s best-selling children’s novel.
