'Trevor' Talk Back After May 14 Matinee

Posted: Thursday, April 27, 2017, 5:31pm

Curtain Players continues its Curtain Panels audience talk back program following the 2 PM Sunday May 14 performance of Trevor. Director Michael Fusco, the cast, and available creative/technical team members will meet with the audience following the show to discuss the script and the production.

Tickets for Trevor are available on this website. Click here. Performances are 8 PM Fridays and Saturdays May 5-6, 12-13, and 19-20, and 2 PM Sundays May 14 and 21.

Nick Jones’s play is described as a moving exploration of family, flawed communication, and humanity. Inspired by true events, Trevor is a subversive comedy 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 relationship: Trevor, a chimpanzee who once performed in commercials, and his owner Sandra, who swears he would never hurt a fly… at least not on purpose.

NOTE: Trevor is recommended for audiences ages 13 and older because of some strong language.

Following one performance in each Curtain Players production’s run — usually the first Sunday matinee — the director, actors, and available designers and technicians gather on stage for a question-and-answer session with the audience. This is an opportunity for an informal conversation about such topics as a play’s subject matter, the challenge of staging the production, a director’s choices and vision, technical and behind-the-scenes design work, and how actors prepare for their roles.

Formally established in 2010, Curtain Panels is one of ongoing initiatives Curtain Players has developed to increase audience appreciation of and engagement in the organization and its productions, and more broadly, with theatre arts no matter the stage.
