Fame. Success. Lies. Oh, and an erratic, 200-pound chimpanzee. The Santa Fe Playhouse opens its 2019 season with Trevor. Inspired by true events, Trevor is the subversive comedy by Nick Jones that won the 2015 Los Angeles Drama Critic’s Circle Award for Writing.
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.
Performed by Evan Dalzell (Trevor), Marguerite Scott (Sandra), Stephen Rommel (Jim), Veronica Everett (Ashley), Robert Allen Henkel Jr. (Oliver), Evan Galpert (Jerry/PA), and Isabel Madley (Morgan Fairchild).
