Elephants

About Elephants

'I told you we should have gone to the Caribbean.'

5.53 p.m. Christmas Eve.

Richard and Sally are waiting for their friends and family to join in the festivities - the tree is decorated, the wine is mulling, the presents are wrapped. But behind this shiny façade, nothing is quite right - and as cracks start appearing, attempts to paper over them make for an explosive evening of revelations and dark secrets exposed.

Rose Heiney's debut play Elephants is a sharp black comedy with a tender heart that explores the paths we take in life and their repercussions on the people we love most.

Rose Heiney is an award-winning screenwriter and novelist whose television credits include Miranda, Fresh Meat and Big Bad World.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Elephants are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
