    From multi award-winning writer Michael Morpurgo and the creators of Private Peaceful, An Elephant in the Garden returns to the stage in Bristol by popular demand. This deeply imaginative, gentle giant of a production transports us to the end of the Second World War, celebrating love in the face of hate.

    1945. Dresden, Germany. Lizzie, her mother and an elephant from the zoo flee the Allied fire-bombing at the end of the Second World War.

    Escaping the Allies’ advance from the West and the Russian armies from the East, this extraordinary trio of refugees meets an RAF officer who has bailed out of his aeroplane, a homeless school choir on the run from the Nazis and the American tanks appearing over the horizon.
