About

THERE’S AN ELEPHANT IN EVERY ROOM

ELEPHENTS is a surreal soap opera with songs where people find
the power to sing all the things they want to say.
Written by Jeffrey Jay Fowler and directed by Kathryn Osborne,
the creative team behind the Martin Sims award-winning work
"Minnie & Mona Play Dead".

In Tuskville there is an elephant sleeping in every bedroom,
hiding in every basement and perching on every street post.
Roger is an aspiring but talentless songwriter. Horton spends
millions renovating while his partner searches for money to
save the last of the world’s elephants. Flora is trying to
reincarnate her grandmother. With her own womb. The world
also happens to be ending.
