This summer, Elephant Run District will produce three rarely performed one acts by Bertolt Brecht- The Elephant Calf (1926), In Search of Justice (1938) and The Exception and the Rule (1929). This imaginative production will fuse physical and political theatre, bringing these early 20th century works into the contemporary world of the Occupy Movement, Citizens United, Stop & Frisk actions and Stand Your Ground laws.

About the Company: Elephant Run District
Elephant Run District is a collective devoted to challenging expectations, inspiring dialogue in our community and creating long-lasting memories. Elephant Run seeks to entertain its audience at the same time it addresses social justice issues. The District is a place where traditions collide and new possibilities are explored in the hunt to create stories that are ultimately human. Like any community, The District is in a constant state of evolution, becoming more diverse and exciting as collaborators move in, set up shop and offer their creative wares to the world. Established in 2010, we have produced 2 full-length plays and various smaller projects. Our first production was hailed “a highlight of the theatrical season” by Martin Denton in 2011. elephantrundistrict. org.
