The Room in the Elephant

The Room in the Elephant


Peter Street,


We like to think of it as a 'daring expose revealing the state of contemporary masculinity in a post-feminist milieu', but Total Theatre seem to think its ‘Comedy Gold… full of surprises’ with an ending that’s ‘a total hoot!’ Two young men struggling to come up with ideas for a show decide it will be an exact re-enactment of their current conversation. An older man arrives and states this sounds like some “awful, self-referential bullsh*t”. This simple premise leads to mind-boggling shifts in understanding where and when the show is set, and who these men actually are.

If you would like any information on bringing a group to this show, or any show in Carlisle Fringe, please get in touch.
