About the show

AlphaNYC, showcasing up-and-coming performers, presents 2 one-acts: 'The Exhibition,' about the "Elephant Man," and 'Flowers for Algernon,' about an intellectually disabled adult. More…

'The Exhibition' takes a more personal look at the relationship between Sir Frederick Treves and his most famous patient, the "Elephant Man", John Merrick. This unique production is based on Sir Frederick Treves personal journal. Tormented by his inner psyche, Treves asks the question: did he really help Merrick or did he participate in putting him on exhibition?

In 1966, author Daniel Keyes published the controversial novel 'Flowers for Algernon.' In this one act adaptation, audiences follow Charlie Gordon, a 32 year old intellectually disabled man, the first human test subject for a surgery designed to boost his intelligence.
