It was 1916. There was a Town. There was a Circus. And there was a Murder. When The Sparks World Famous Shows Circus pulls into the quiet town of Erwin, Tennessee, the residents of the sleepy little hamlet can hardly contain their excitement. But when a member of the circus commits a horrific crime, the townsfolk demand justice. Building on both historical fact and legend, “Elephant’s Graveyard” questions how good people can, if only for a moment, turn into monsters, unleashing a deep-seated American craving for spectacle and revenge.
“Elephant’s Graveyard” is directed by Fred Helsel and David Ralphe, with Leslie Nichols producing. Scenic design is by Mike Carnahan with lighting design by Gary Richardson and costume design by Justine Abbitt. Karl Krause will stage manage the production.
Featured in the ensemble cast are Ronald Rezac, Taylor Kasch, Dan Tullis, Nancy Solomons, Anthony Stetson, Scott Blanchard, Cynthia Killion, Mona Leah, Johnny O’Grady, Eric Burton, Maryann Shilo, Robert Sabotka and Robert MacNeal.
