Lizzie and Karl's mother is a zoo keeper; the family has become attached to an orphaned elephant named Marlene, who will be destroyed as a precautionary measure so she and the other animals don't run wild should the zoo be hit by bombs. The family persuades the zoo director to let Marlene stay in their garden instead. When the city is bombed, the family flees with thousands of others, but how can they walk the same route when they have an elephant in tow, and keep themselves safe? Along the way, they meet Peter, a Canadian navigator who risks his own capture to save the family. As Michael Morpurgo writes in an author's note, An Elephant in the Garden is inspired by historical truths, and by his admiration for elephants, "the noblest and wisest and most sensitive of all creatures." Here is a story that brings together an unlikely group of survivors whose faith in kindness and love proves the best weapon of all.

‘The four Tim Crouch plays contained in this volume make up one of the most important bodies of English-language playwriting to have emerged so far in the twenty-first century. Of course, we’re less than a dozen years into it, so the statement is still a little on the cautious side, but I can think of no other contemporary playwright who has asked such a compelling set of questions about theatrical form, narrative content, and spectatorial engagement.’ - Stephen Bottoms, University of Leeds Includes the plays The Author, England,An Oak Tree and My Arm. My Arm ‘...he is actually exploring on stage the nature of art and performance itself, taking risks in the process... At these moments, Crouch is armed and dangerous.’ - Guardian An Oak Tree ‘Pirandello for a modern audience and better. It’s philosophy in action, playful and seriously thought-provoking.’ - Independent on Sunday ENGLAND ‘...created with rigorous, poetic economy... ENGLAND belongs to that wonderful genre of thoughtful plays that could be discussed for hours without exhausting its ideas.’ - New York Times The Author ‘This is not audience participation; it is the audience at once being the theatre and interrogating it.’ - Financial Times
