The Life History of the African Elephant


By Clem Martini
Directed by Lunchbox Theatre founder Bartley Bard

One of Lunchbox Theatre’s most beloved shows! The beautiful, quirky and touching story of a half blind and highly accident prone woman and the unlikely friendship she forges with a shy, unassuming elephant trainer.
It features the original cast of Barbara Gates-Wilson, David LeReaney and Brian Jensen and is directed by founding Lunchbox Theatre Artistic Directors, Margaret and Bartley Bard.
