Wie Versteckt Man Einen Elefanten?

by Joel Horwood

based on The Great Elephant Chase by Gillian Cross

a new play for families for the Burgtheater Vienna

We're excited to be creating a new piece for the prestigious Burgtheater in Vienna this autumn. Wie Versteckt Man Einen Elefanten? (How to Hide an Elephant) is a new adaptation of Gillian Cross' much-loved adventure story about two children attempting to escape across 1880s America.. with a large Indian elephant.

Wie Versteckt Man.. opens on 27th October at the splendid Kasino am Schwarzenbergplatz, Vienna. The show is adapted by Joel Horwood and directed by Ingo Berk (director of Die Brüder Löwenherz and Peter Pan) and Mervyn Millar. The designer is Damian Hitz, music is by Patrik Zeller and the dramaturg is Tobias Herzberg.

We're currently building our elephant in London. The puppet is designed by Mervyn Millar and the making team is led by Tracy Waller and includes Emma Douglas, Helen Foan, Maia Kirkman-Richards, Jo Lakin, Seb Mayer, Malgorzata Rekusz, Julie Amalie Svensson, and Ivan Thorley.
