Author(s): Tom Wright
Company: Nottingham Playhouse
Age recommendation: 12+

Arriving from his East Midlands beginnings in a London thick with the grime of industrialisation, Joseph Merrick is an anomaly. In a city of factories that churn out uniformity, there is no place for a unique being like him.

But Merrick and the city are evolving into something new. Follow him through the workhouse, the freak show and hospital as he searches for acceptance in a society that just wants to stare at him.
