"Cantrell was fantastic in the role. He fully committed to each moment of happiness, anger, and excitement and he commanded the stage throughout..."
"Sowerwine played it with a truth that was gripping. Her chemistry with Cantrell made for some of the most tender and heartbreaking moments on stage."
"He's an Animal!"
What separates man from beast? What defines a family? What are the animals trying to tell us? These are just some of the questions that my friend and I found ourselves discussing at length after viewing Nick Jones' Trevor, directed by Charlie Cardwell, presented by Cyrano's Theatre Company, which opened last weekend.
This subversive comedy is inspired by true events, and tells a story about fame, success, and the lies we tell ourselves. Trevor is a chimpanzee who performed with the likes of Morgan Fairchild and would never hurt a fly, at least not on purpose, He is just trying to let his handler Sandy know how much he misses “the business”, but it seems like every visitor that stops by the house has their own opinion on what should happen to him. A moving exploration of family, flawed communication, and humanity, this almost two hour production takes the audience on an emotional journey. Playwright Jones, a born and raised Alaskan, is best known for his work as a writer for the Netflix programs Orange Is The New Black and Glow
