Les Enfants Terribles Greenwich Partnership Award 2017


Dust Bowl America. Backstage at the travelling circus, we discover the complex relationship between one man and his performing chimpanzee.

Marooned in a world she does not comprehend, Goody finds comfort with her only companion: her trainer Frances. How do they communicate? How do they cohabit? Who is in control?

Lucy Roslyn's new play is a striking, darkly funny exploration of the extraordinary, heartbreaking world of performing apes and the humans who live with them, love them and break them.
