FEATURES / CONTAINS

Bare Stage/Simple Set

Originally written for high-school-age performers, and first performed by forty actors from ten different high schools in the Great Valley (Pennsylvania) School District, this vividly theatrical play can be produced effectively with half that many actors and with the roles played by individuals either older or younger than the text suggests. Using the simplest of means to tell its antic story of the day "they hung the elephant in Eddington, Tennessee," the play also carries a strong and pertinent message about racial prejudice, the mindless power of an alarmed mob, and the unreasoning fears that ignorance and lack of compassion can generate.
