Event Details

An Elephant in the Garden

By Michael Morpurgo

Adapted & directed by Simon Reade

Performed by Alison Reid

1945. Dresden, Germany. Lizzie, her mother and an elephant from the zoo, flee the Allied fire-bombing at the end of the Second World War.

Escaping the Allies’ from the West, and the Russians from the East, this extraordinary trio of refugees meet: an RAF officer who has bailed out of his aeroplane; a homeless school choir on the run from the Nazis; and the American army-tanks, appearing over the horizon. Morpurgo’s moving story resonates with the plight of refugees and displaced people fleeing wars around the world today.

An Elephant in the Garden is adapted from Michael Morpurgo’s best-selling children’s novel by the creators of the 5 star Morpurgo hit Private Peaceful

Beautiful storytelling in action… stunningly performed by Alison Reid THE GUARDIAN
