Synopsis: Inspired by a real story and written by Nick Jones (Orange is the New Black), a chimpanzee named Trevor once starred in an infomercial with Morgan Fairchild. Now, he lives alone with Sandra, a middle-aged widow, but he dreams of a showbiz comeback. Sandra knows Trevor would never hurt anybody, but next-door neighbor, Ashley, is concerned.
 
Roles: All roles are open

TREVOR – M20’s-40’s. Described by the playwright as “a 200 pound, 11-year-old chimpanzee.” The character is dressed in overalls and a tee shirt, not in fake fur or a chimp costume. The character speaks in English and only occasionally reverts to gibberish. Actor playing Trevor will need to behave physically like an adult chimp.
 
SANDRA MORRIS – F50-60. Trevor’s “mom.”
 
ASHLEY – F30’s. The next-door neighbor and mother of a baby.
 
JIM – M40-60. The county sheriff.
 
OLIVER – M20’s-40’s. Another chimp. Known to be successful. Often well dressed.
 
PRODUCTION ASSISTANT / JERRY – M20’s-40’s. Non-White. Playwright notes that “doubling serves to illustrate how these characters are interchangeable in Trevor’s mind.” Production Assistant refers to an assistant on a TV show. Jerry is the animal control officer dispatched to evaluate Trevor.
 
MORGAN FAIRCHILD – F50’s. Yes, that Morgan Fairchild. Blonde. Star power. Likes to laugh.

 
Please note: PCS is an all-volunteer organization, all roles are unpaid.
