The Elephant

Last weekend the Bradleian hosted an outstanding group of Hundred and Remove actors in David Kenworthy’s play The Elephant.

Exploring the notion of lost and found through invisible friends, each student presented a carefully crafted individual character exploring an original perspective.

A series of monologues and duologues were seamlessly connected by haunting physical reflections in which the actors beautifully sustained the intensity that they had invested in
the language. This was skillful work to be highly commended. Together they formed a cohesive ensemble unitedly focused on the absent. The unwavering nature of this focus along with the clarity of their performance convictions ensured that, for us, the absent was very much present.
