The Smallest Person

4 August – 4 December 2004

In The Smallest Person the true story of 19½ inch tall Caroline Crachami and her short lived celebrity in Georgian England was told alongside that of a contemporary family seeking a cure for their seriously ill son. Medical ethics and moral dilemmas brought the two stories together with rationality and sentiment doing battle in the name of medical science.

Supported by the Wellcome Trust, this was the first Trestle production directed by the Company’s new Artistic Director, Emily Gray.
