Synopsis


A stage adaptation of the short story 'A Report to An Academy' by Franz Kafka.


An African ape has been captured in the jungles of West Africa and brought back to 'civilization' by his European captors.


To escape a life of incarceration, he 'evolves' into a human being.


Red Peter mimics human habits from the crew of the ship upon which he is imprisoned, masters human speech and eventually decides to embrace human society rather than languish in a zoo as an ape.


He even performs as a human on the vaudeville stage.
