Austin Stone and James Thames in The Elephant ManScott Community College’s heart-tugging production of playwright Bernard Pomerance’s The Elephant Man is truly touching, with much of the credit for Thursday’s emotion going to James Thames' portrayal of the titular character. While director Steve Flanigin does not use makeup to make Thames look like the real Joseph Merrick – who lived during the late 19th Century and who, for still-unknown reason, was deformed with what looked like gargantuan warts on his head, shoulder, torso, legs, and right arm – Thames manages to successfully depict physical abnormality by way of constantly holding his mouth to the right side of his face, even while speaking. Through the course of Merrick's existence from sideshow freak to hospital resident to friend of high-society England, it’s Thames’ unassuming nature and gentle speech, as filtered through his deformed face, that make his Merrick so heartbreaking and pitiable.
