Circle X Theatre Co Presents Laurie Metcalf and Jimmi Simpson in Trevor
Inspired by true events, TREVOR is a subversive comedy about fame, success, and the lies we tell ourselves in order to keep people from taking away our erratic, 200-pound chimpanzee. At the center of this hilarious and heart-wrenching play are two individuals fighting against a world unable to understand their love: Trevor, a 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.
TREVOR premiered at Theater for the New City, NYC, produced by Lesser America in 2013.
REVOR will preview on Thursday, March 5; Friday, March 6; Saturday, March 7; Thursday, March 12 & Friday, March 13 at 8pm and will open on Saturday, March 14 and run through Sunday, April 19 at Atwater Village Theatre, 3269 Casitas Ave. in Los Angeles, 90039. Performances are Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm; Sundays at 2pm. Tickets are $28. Previews are Pay-What-You-Can at the door. For tickets, buy online at www.circlextheatre.org.
