Part gig, part piano lesson, part journey through Empire

Review this show

Overview

A piano came through the sky and landed in Lylah’s council flat, just for her. As she pours over the keys and sound floods into all the rooms, Lylah falls in love.

At school, Lylah can’t ask questions – she’s got to be good, good, good or else she’ll lose her scholarship. At home she can’t ask questions; her cousins say she talks weird, and her parents are distracted.

So she asks her piano: Where did you come from? Why are you here? And their shared history tumbles into the light.

Elephant is a powerful new play from Anoushka Lucas (Afterlife, Chiaroscuro). A new Bush commission, Elephant first appeared as part of the Bush’s Protest series, a response to the murder of George Floyd.

Age Recommendation: 14+

A teasing, provoking pleasure

Beautifully performed by Lucas and cleverly directed by Edwards
