An Elephant in the Garden at Tobacco Factory Theatres: Friday 6th & Saturday 7th July

On Friday 6th and Saturday 7th July, the hugely popular family show, An Elephant in the Garden will return to the stage at Tobacco Factory Theatres.

From multi award-winning writer Michael Morpurgo and the creators of Private Peaceful, this imaginative, gentle production will transport children and families to the end of the Second World War, celebrating love in the face of hate.

The show is set in Dresden, Germany in 1945 and follows Lizzie, her mother and an elephant from the zoo who flee the Allied fire-bombing at the end of the Second World War.

Escaping the Allies’ advance from the West and the Russian armies from the East, this extraordinary trio of refugees meets an RAF officer who has bailed out of his aeroplane, a homeless school choir on the run from the Nazis and the American tanks appearing over the horizon.

A Poonamallee production, this show is written by Michael Morpurgo, adapted and directed by Simon Reade and performed by Alison Reid.

It is ideal for children aged 9 years+ and their families.
