The ElephantomA tale of a little girl and her ghost-elephant friend, The Elephantom by Ross Collins is a charming family tale. Transferring from the National Theatre's The Shed to the New London Theatre in the West End, the play focuses on a little girl who is at first delighted to have her larger-than-life friend living with her - he makes everything so much fun! However, it doesn't take long before she starts to realise that Elephantoms are simply too big for houses and he starts to get into all sorts of trouble. Through clever puppetry and theatrical ingenuity, Ben Power successfully adapts this story for the stage. The children's show runs in the daytime at the New London Theatre, home of War Horse, from 30th June until 6th September 2014. Suitable for children aged 3 and above.

 

About New London Theatre

Although this site has been an entertainment venue since at least the mid-19th century, the New London Theatre only opened its doors in 1973, making it one of the West End's newest theatres. The building is sleek and impressive, with a stunning mirrored facade. More about New London Theatre
