“All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players. They have their exits and their entrances, and one man in his time plays many parts.”
Elephant’s Graveyard is the true tale of the tragic collision of a struggling circus and a tiny town in Tennessee, which resulted in the only known lynching of an elephant. Set in September of 1916, the play combines historical fact and legend, exploring the deep-seated American craving for spectacle, violence, and revenge. This abridged version, which runs about 40 minutes in length, is perfect for high schools looking to perform the play at theatre competitions, or for producers looking for a shorter version of the original script. Adapted by the author, it maintains the haunting drama of the award-winning full-length play.
One Act Play
The One-Act Play Production at Arnold High School is much more than performing. Students learn life skills such as responsibility, discipline, team work, time management and self-esteem. What students learn can be used in any field that requires public speaking – from a classroom, to board room, to a courtroom.
