Slideshow LinkClick to view gallery

Elephant's Graveyard is the true tale of the tragic collision of a struggling circus and a tiny town in Tennessee, which resulted in the only known lynching of an elephant. Set in September of 1916, George Brant’s play combines historical fact and legend, exploring the deep-seated American craving for spectacle, violence and revenge.”
