The Glass Elephant is a brand new comedy drama created by Indian-born writer and neuroscientist Anjali Bhat, with an original score written and performed live by the celebrated pianist John-Paul Muir. The play will premiere during this year’s Edinburgh Festival and return to London for the Bloomsbury Festival in October. If you like Tennessee Williams' The Glass Menagerie or Phoebe Waller-Bridge's Fleabag, this is for you.
Silliness isn’t trivial. It takes courage.
A devastating incident that shakes the foundations of Clara and Rupert’s marriage is immediately obscured by familial chaos. Desperately trying to overlook her husband’s poorly timed identity crisis, Clara tries to cope as Christmas day grows more and more bizarre. The Glass Elephant’s riot of colourful characters will lure you into the “Land of Difficult Questions” as they are each forced to find the courage to shatter the fragile ‘elephant in the room’.
There will be five shows of The Glass Elephant at the Royal Scots Club on the 16th-17th, 19th-21st of August at 15:30.
There will be one show of The Glass Elephant at the Chapel Playhouse at 15.30 on the 12th of October 2019.
