Mark Twain was a comic genius, the greatest American humorist of the 19th century, and (in literary terms) of all time. Best known for Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn, our company are instead showcasing one of his funniest short stories. This is The Stolen White Elephant. It’s an absurdist masterpiece, with Inspector Blunt and his detectives being in hot pursuit of an elephant on the loose. This is our third Fringe, following on from our sold-out 2018 show Shackleton and His Stowaway, and the critically acclaimed 2022 show Tam O’Shanter, Tales & Whisky.
