Three new shows announced at Trafalgar Studios 2

Three new shows have been announced for the Trafalgar Studios 2 spring 2007 season

Elephant Man
By Bernard Pomerance, will open 5 April 2007, following previews from 4 April - running to 5 May 2007. Directed by Bruce Guthrie, produced by Ashley Herman and Sean Sweeney / Creative First production . Based on the brief life of John Merrick. Abandoned as a child and shunned by society the horribly deformed Merrick survives as a freak show attraction until a famous young doctor rescues him from his life on the streets. Evolving from a sensational object of pity to the urbane and witty favourite of the aristocracy and literati, his belief that he can become a man like any other is a dream tragically never realised.

Terre Haute
By Edmund White, will open 10 May 2007, following previews from 8 May - running to 2 June 2007. Directed by George Perrin, designed by Hannah Clark, lighting by Matthew Eagland, produced by Nabokov . Starring Peter Eyre, Arthur Darvill. A famous author comes face-to-face with America's most notorious terrorist. One has a story to write, the other a story to tell. As the clock ticks on death row, the bond between the two men grows. A haunting imagination of Gore Vidal's relationship with Oklahoma bomber Timothy McVeigh

Two Men Talking
written and performed by Paul Browde and Murray Nossel. Opens 7 June 2007, following previews from 5 June - running to 23 June 2007. Produced by Scamp Theatre and Barrow Street Productions . In 1974, in Johannesburg, a teacher asked two rival schoolboys to tell one another a story. Three decades later Murray Nossel, an Academy-Award(R) nominated filmmaker, and Paul Browde, a psychiatrist, meet by chance in New York and set out to transform the world through storytelling. Paul and Murray talk of growing up white, middle class and privileged under apartheid.
