Trevor is a has been. The auditions have dried up and his days as a television actor are behind him. But, Trevor has dreams. He wants another shot at the big time. And, above all, to re-unite with his former commercial co-star, Morgan Fairchild. However, it’s tough to make a comeback in Hollywood. Particularly, if you are a chimpanzee. Like Trevor.
Inspired by true events, Trevor is a subversive comedy about fame, flawed communication and love.
And, the lies we tell ourselves to keep people - anyone - from taking away an erratic, beloved 200-pound chimpanzee.

AUSTRALIAN PREMIERE - OCTOBER 2019
Heat and desire sizzle in every line of Tennessee Williams’ Deep South tale of lust, jealousy and betrayal.
Down-on-his-luck Archie Lee is obsessed with his young bride, Baby Doll, but Baby is keeping her husband on a long leash. When the neighbouring cotton gin is burnt to the ground, dangerously charismatic Silva Vacarro pays them a visit, suspicious that Archie is to blame. In the steamy hours that follow, power and passion come irresistibly to the fore as a game of truth or dare plays out.
Peppered with wry humour and sultry comedy, this brand new adaptation breathes fresh life into a beautifully crafted tale by one of the greatest playwrights of the 20th century.
