THE ELEPHANT MAN by Bernard Pomerance
October 13 – 30, 2016
John Merrick (played by SET's own Micah Spears) is a man living with horrifying, rare skin and bone diseases. Seen as a freak by society, his life changes when young physician Frederick Treves (Jude Bishop) agrees to care for him. Merrick quickly becomes a favorite of the English aristocracy — an acceptance that comes with a heavy price.
