Synopsis


Male gorillas are called "Silverbacks".


Female gorillas have no name.


Female gorillas … Female gorillas have less facts about them on google because no one seems to study them as much as the males.


Meet Girl & Gorilla, handcuffed in a world of patriarchal gaze.


Girl is shaved, Gorilla is hairy.


This is a problem.


One they can't solve easily.


Girl & Gorilla have been together forever, but hairiness has become a fundamental issue.


Where once existed friendship, now antagonism rules.


Girl is compulsive about removing all traces of hair - an impossible task when handcuffed to Gorilla.


The key disappeared long ago.


They are unavoidably stuck together.


How do they co-exist, and is this the day that will change everything?


Blending absurdist comedy, spoken word, games, gorilla facts and new writing, brand new theatre collective Klein Blue bring this hugely popular show to CPT, interrogating the taboo of female hairiness.
