The Blue Elephant continues to bring the work of Mervyn Peake to the stage with this unnerving novella of Titus Groan's teenage years. Read More >

Struggling against the oppressive rituals inflicted by his birthright, the Boy escapes the Castle on his fourteenth birthday, only to find himself in the midst of unimagined horror.

Following the world premiere of The Cave and the stage premiere of Noah’s Ark, the Blue Elephant continues to bring the work of Mervyn Peake to the stage. This work-in-progress of Boy In Darkness – one of only two novellas he wrote – recounts an unnerving episode of Gormenghast hero Titus Groan’s teenage years.
