about the project

Casting The Elephant Song, a play by Ian Nicolas Billion, about eminent psychiatrist has vanished from his office. 

Logline: The last person to have seen him is Michael, a troubled patient obsessed with all things to do with elephants.

Dr. Greenberg, the hospital director, is determined to question Michael, ignoring the head nurse’s cryptic warnings. Michael speaks of elephants and opera- with the occasional hint of murder and foul play: fraught with mind games and verbal tug-of-wars.
