In Association With Pachyderm Productions
a true story about the nature of man
Written by David Castro
Starring Tim Powell
With Special Cameo Performance By Emily Button
Directed by John Coppola
Originally Directed For The Stage by Dennis Neal
Man’s Dominion tells the story of the 1916 lynching in Erwin, TN, of Mary the elephant and star attraction of the Sparks Family Shows, an itinerant circus that toured the American Southeast and beyond for years. Man’s Dominion tells Mary’s story along with those of witnesses, participants and circus co-workers and stars actor Tim Powell in a one- person theatrical event where he brings to life ten (10) characters in nineteen (19) separate but thematically unified monologues. We are honored – and saddened as well - to bring Mary’s story to the world during this, the 100th anniversary year of her death. Man’s Dominion was written by Emmy-nominated TV writer David Castro and originally directed for the stage by Dennis Neal. This current production at Studio C Artists is directed by John Coppola.

Where can I contact the organizer with any questions?
You can email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (323) 988-1175.
Is my registration/ticket transferrable?
Can I update my registration information?
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
It helps, but is not necessary.
What is the refund policy?
We do our best to refund tickets when possible. If seats are SOLD OUT, we are unable to offer a refund; but if a show has not yet SOLD OUT, then we will gladly refund your tickets, so that you can purchase them for a different night.
What about late seating?
We aim to start the show on time, so please do your best to be seated by 8PM. We will try to hold the show for a few minutes to accommodate late-comers. If you are not in attendance by 8:05PM, and we have a waitlist, your seats will be given to those on the waitlist. If you arrive after your seat has been given away, we will accommodate you with standing room, and refund you the difference (if any) in your ticket price.
The name on the registration/ticket doesn't match the attendee. Is that okay?
Yes, that's not a problem, as long as you have the tickets with you.
