Theater: “Trevor” by Nick Jones Presented at The Santa Fe Playhouse
Inspired by true events, Trevor is a subversive comedy about fame, success, and the lies we tell ourselves. At the center of this hilarious and heart-wrenching play are two individuals fighting against a world unable to understand their love: Trevor, a 200-pound chimpanzee who once performed in commercials with the likes of Morgan Fairchild, and his owner Sandra, who swears he would never hurt a fly…at least not on purpose. A moving exploration of family, flawed communication, and humanity. Fans of plays like Sylvia will love this moving comedy.
“This fable, inspired by actual occurrences, is structurally ingenious, animal and human perspectives interweaving in ways that swerve from hilarious to heartbreaking to house-stilling.”
–LA Times (Critic’s Pick)
“Sweet, clever and weirdly touching… Trevor‘s absurdist mixture of showbiz satire and real-life poignancy is so continually delightful, in fact, that you may not notice, as it flows by, how resonant the story actually is.”
