Elephant and Castle

‘A tightly, freshly executed, bijou musical about Adams' parasomnia. Henley’s extraordinary voice and the pair's distinctive, appealing onstage chemistry make this show’ ⋆⋆⋆⋆ The Stage

The first time my wife and I shared a bed I told her, ‘I want to get in a wardrobe and take you to Elephant and Castle.’ I was asleep. Do people tell the truth when they talk in their sleep? Could anyone be on the verge of admitting some dark desire, or telling the person beside them what they really think?

That’s the dangerous premise behind Elephant & Castle, the result of three years of Tom Adams’ recorded sleep-talk. With original songs performed live by Adams and Henley, this is a tender, funny and entirely unique gig theatre show about the joy and terror of talking in your sleep

Husband and wife team, Tom Adams and Lillian Henley, are behind the show Elephant and Castle. Find out more in our Festival Hot Seat interview.
