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

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 show consists of incredibly talented performers with a great amount of commitment. I loved the movements, how everybody was in sync with each other from the beginning to the end.

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

An excellent performance piece with stylized movement, mime and the rich sonorous sound of didgeridoo played live in close proximity.... full review
SARA PATTERSON certified reviewer June 19, 2017
This show was wonderfully entertaining. The story was clear and beautiful, due mainly to the strength in the material being based on a true story. Director Ben managed to transport his audience to another time and place with the aid of a long rope and a record player. Everything I would expect to see at the Fringe.... full review
