Eight years ago, a chimpanzee named Trevor starred in an infomercial with Morgan Fairchild. Now, Trevor's showbiz career is on the rocks, but he dreams of a TV comeback with Morgan. He lives alone with Sandra, a middle-aged widow. She knows that Trevor would never do anything to hurt anybody - especially not paranoid next-door neighbor, Ashley, or her precious newborn baby. Inspired by a true story, Trevor is a play about fame, success and the lies we tell ourselves and others.
The cast includes Eric Rupp of Folsom, Kathy Quinn of Clifton Heights, Jess Stinson of Wallingford, Jim Fryer of Lansdowne, John Barker of Glen Mills, Stephen Travers of Sharon Hill, and Anne Lannak of Oreland. The Players Club's Raymond W. Smith stage is not handicapped-accessible.
