Our third official show of the 2014-15 season took place in week two of Epiphany Term, as CTC performed Bernard Pomerance's 'The Elephant Man' in Durham Castle's prestigious Great Hall. Based on the true story of Joseph Merrick, a young man who is afflicted with a disfiguring congenital disease. The play follows the struggle of Dr. Frederick Treves as he attempts to help Merrick lead as normal a life as possible, ultimately leading to their tragic downfall.
