AbstractHistoryArchive Description

Clinchfield tells the bizarre but true story of the 1916 hanging in a small town in America's south of 'Murderous Mary', a circus elephant that killed its trainer, to explore issues of justice, retribution, racism and values in society. In doing so, the play also resonates with a contemporary world tackling intractable issues like terrorism. [Source: Stage Whispers, a guide to theatre in Australia and New Zealand (via link here).]
