Based on a True Story

PROOF OF VACCINATION OR NEGATIVE COVID TEST IS REQUIRED AS ARE MASKS FOR THIS PERFORMANCE.

By Nick Lehane of New York, New York

Chimpanzee is based on the stranger-than-fiction stories of chimpanzees raised as children in human homes, in a series of cross-fostering experiments conducted in the United States. When these chimpanzees matured, or when funding dried up, some of these cross-fostered chimps went on to live as test subjects in a radically different area of scientific research – pathogen studies performed in biomedical facilities. Hundreds of chimpanzees remain warehoused in labs to this day.

Chimpanzee is an hour in a theater, a day in a biomedical facility, and a lifetime in the mind of a chimpanzee.

gorgeous puppet play…a meticulous, deeply felt nonverbal memory play.
