Elephant Man

Elephant Man present but unseen.
He is in a tent or behind a drape.
During the scene, the shadow of his hands can be observed as he warms them over a small lamp enclosed within some bricks, a lamp that is also used for the exhibition.
Elephant Man, his real name being Joseph Merrick, was utterly misshapen
except for one arm and a hand that had escaped the disease. His hand was very delicate, like a woman's hand. Tom Norman is playing with a deck of tarot cards.
His assistant, Jimmy, is resting.
