Part tragicomedy, part exploration of how we interact with our closest non-human relatives, Trevor invites discussion about the nature of family, the vagaries of fame, and the ways we deceive each other and ourselves. Though based on a horrifying true story, Trevor uses touches of absurdism to go beyond the headlines, examining what happens when communication fails and we struggle to navigate the fuzzy boundaries of our relationships and our humanity. 

What are the challenges of telling a story like this on the stage? Santa Fe Playhouse Artistic Director Vaughn Irving and Trevor Director Monique Lacoste will discuss their production process for this unique show. Special focus will be placed on how this play relates to the overall theme of the Playhouse’s 2019 season and how, exactly, human actors can convey the complex and frequently hilarious relationship between a frazzled woman, her disapproving community, and her fame-starved and erratic chimpanzee.

Performances of Trevor can be seen at the Santa Fe Playhouse from March 14-31.


Doors open at 5:30 pm for light refreshments and conversation before the talk.
