This show moved me on so many levels. It is raw. There were moments of joy, sadness, discomfort, etc... all things we experience on a daily basis. The delivery was great from each actor. ... full review

Fascinating manifestation of character through physical movement. Intriguing story told with humor and pathos. Highly recommend seeing the work of this troupe of players.... full review

This show presents a haunting and provocative view of humanity, questioning what exactly is at the core of our human existence. Minimal in its presentation, CHIMPSKIN is rich in its showcase of talent and powerful in the way it invites the audience in. I left the theater engaged and moved. ... full review

Little has ever moved me the way Chimpskin did. Stories like these are vastly overlooked, and even when their told, rarely are they executed this brilliantly. The ensemble, the movement, the music. This piece was a beautiful journey with such subtlety and raw passion. Please do yourself a favor and go and experience Chimpskin!... full review

This show was unlike anything I've ever seen. Chimpskin tells the unique story of Lucy, a chimp that was brought up like a human as an experiment.

The story is based on true events and the Puckwit Gang turned the story of Lucy into a series of view points, discoveries and vignettes that they wrote themselves. It was truly remarkable and really pushed the boundaries of what theatre can be. Also, amazing use of live music wi... full review

Riveting from start to finish. A lot of people do movement-y thetare and all you see is this attempt to be sort of cool and abstract. THIS is not that. This is story-telling that goes beyond words. Every gesture, utterance, layered use of prop, music piece and shift in character enriches the story and makes it all the more sweet and savage and utterly engrossing. I just LOVED it. Do yourself a favor and get yourself into some chimpskin. ... full review

I left the show invigorated and inspired by how much the theatre can say and reminded of why I find it so much more involving than cinema.... full review
