Last call for `Elephant Man'

This is the last weekend to see the Vagabond Players' production of Bernard Pomerance's 1988 Tony Award-winning play, "The Elephant Man." Based on the real-life story of John Merrick, a deformed man who lived in England during the Victorian era, the play presents Merrick without any graphic representation of deformity. Instead, an able-bodied actor portrays the character, indicating Merrick's misshapen form through posture alone, and thus allowing the audience to see the healthy, normal soul trapped inside.

Under Barry Feinstein's direction at the Vagabond Theatre, Christopher Millard plays the title role, and Tom Blair is the caring doctor who treats him.

Show times at the Vagabond Theatre, 806 S. Broadway, are 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, 2 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $12. Call 410-563-9135.
