The Catastrophic Theatre presents
by Nick Jones
February 10th â March 4th, 2017.
Presented @ The MATCH, 3400 Main Street.
âPlays like Sylvia and Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo have found humor in animals speaking like humans. But in Trevor, the laughs (and there are many) have an edge. Imagine the frustration of not being able to accurately communicate with the person closest to you, the one you depend on most. Itâs the kind of thing that happens on an emotional level in human relationships all the time, but by using this theatrical conceit, the stakes heighten.â
âJason Zinoman, The New York Times
Inspired by the true story of a woman attacked by a 200-pound pet chimpanzee, Trevor finds pathos, poignancy and, perhaps surprisingly, riotous humor by seeing the world through the animalâs eyes.
The play is also a biting satire of show business since Trevor, the chimpanzee, once starred on stage and screen (including a commercial with â80s icon Morgan Fairchild) and now overestimates how much the human world might be clamoring for his comeback.
Classical Theatre Presents The Ghost Sonata
Classical Theatre Company presents Strindbergâs rarely produced final play, the supernatural drama,
The Ghost Sonata
ny August Strindberg
February 8 â February 26, 2017.
Following 2012âs production of Miss Julie, Classical Theatre Company will produce its second play by the Swedish great August Strindberg in The Ghost Sonata.
This dark examination of family was originally produced in 1908 and has disturbed audiences ever since.
âStrindberg had a very unhappy family life â particularly his childhood. This play was his attempt to exorcise those ghosts through this supernatural drama,â says CTC chief John Johnston. âWeâre excited to bring this rarely produced play to our Houston audiences. Weâve done a good job over the years in exposing our audiences to age-old plays that theyâve never seen on stage before. Most theatergoers are familiar with his other plays like Miss Julie, The Father, or A Dream Play, but The Ghost Sonata was his last great play, and perhaps his most overlooked.â

To Kill A Mockingbird lands at A.D Players Houston
A.D. Players presents
To Kill A Mockingbird
Feb 12-March 5th, 2017
Harper Leeâs timeless story contrasts the innocence of childhood with darker themes of prejudice and injustice. When Atticus Finch defends a man falsely accused, both intolerance and quiet heroism are exposed in the tiny town of Maycomb.
A.D. Players, one of Houstonâs oldest and largest resident theater companies, has moved its troupe from the Grace Theater to its new 440-seat venue, the Jeannette and L.M. George Theater (George Theater). The Players completed its 39-year run at the 212-seat Grace Theater in December.
