The REP presents the world première of Gurpreet Kaur Bhatti’s brand new play, Elephant.
Penned by the award-winning playwright of Khandan (Family), this unmissable new show chronicles the unravelling of a family with a secret.
Vira hasn’t seen her sister Deesh for years. Deesh’s kids, Amy and Bill, want to know why but nobody’s telling them anything. When Deesh invites her sister to Amy’s flashy party, Vira reckons it’s time to come home and move on. Time to stop watching the telly, get out of her council flat, stick on a glitzy sari and embrace her nearest and dearest. But is it possible to forgive and forget? And when a family is built on lies, will it be destroyed by the truth?
Elephant tells the story of a family built on untruths, a family whose lives are at odds with their belief system. It’s a timely story about being silenced …and finding a voice.
