An Elephant in the Garden at the Globe Theatre

The An Elephant in the Garden stage tour of Autumn 2016 / Spring 2017 was an enormous success! It sold out performances at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2018, Tobacco Factory Theatres, Bristol and Bristol Old Vic Theatre.
In addition, An Elephant in the Garden ran at Vault Festival in London and sold out the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre.

Now, Poonamallee Productions is bringing the stage tour, based on Michael Morpurgo’s novel of the same name, back. First, it will head to the South Hill Park and Rhodes Arts Complex. After that, in July, An Elephant in the Garden will return to the Globe Theatre, with live music from cellist Clare O’Connell!

Adapted & directed by Simon Reade and performed by Alison Reid.
