Farnham Maltings’ latest production, In Praise of Elephants, is now on tour.
In Praise of Elephants is both a celebration of the greatest animal on the planet and a touching story of a quiet man turning 60 trying to make sense of the world.
Aubrey lives at 34 Mimosa Crescent Aubrey with his sister and niece. Every Thursday afternoon he prepares biscuits made with an elephant shaped cutter. And even though he has never been to Africa, he knows all about the huge, lumbering beasts who can hear with their feet and communicate with their stomachs.
This is a play made especially for village halls. A play full of surprise, music and biscuits about dignity and how the world will be a poorer place when some things are gone.
Written by Kevin Dyer and directed by Gavin Stride.
