Gadabout Theatre Company Presents Nashville Premiere of TREVOR Today & 12
Gadabout Theater Company will present the Nashville premiere of Nick Jones' subversive comedy Trevor - directed by Henry Haggard - at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday, October 11 and 12, at The East Room, 2412 Gallatin Avenue.
"Our goal to bring unique, left-of-center plays to the Nashville area that have never been performed here before," said Stephanie Houghton, founder of Gadabout Theater Company. "Trevor is a truly unique work with a quirky sensibility that's surprisingly touching in places. We hope Nashville theatergoers will take a chance on experiencing something they're never seen here before."
Inspired by true events, Trevor is a story about fame, success and the lies we tell ourselves in order to keep people from taking away an 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. The show is a moving exploration of family, flawed communication and finding humanity in unexpected places.
Trevor is written by Nick Jones, a performer and writer for theater, television and film, perhaps best known as a writer and co-producer for the critically acclaimed Netflix series Orange is the New Black and GLOW.
