Manoa Valley Theatre continues its 2016-17 season in a Hawaii premiere with the poignant drama The Elephant Man, by Bernard Pomerance, from the 1979, 2002, and 2015 Broadway seasons. Based on a true story, nineteenth century London's John Merrick, a horribly deformed young man, victim of rare skin and bone diseases, is befriended by a celebrated young physician, Frederick Treves.
