"McNamara keeps the audience entranced” —Washington City Paper

$20 – $35 | Thurs–Sat 8 pm & Sun 3 pm


An intelligent African ape is captured and shipped abroad. To survive, he imitates his captors and learns to behave like a human. Soon “Red Peter” presents his tale of transformation—and the horrid details of his ape life—to a top scientific academy. See this wild parable brought to life on the stage. McNamara compels us to ponder the issues of free will, vegetarianism, and animal rights. Based on a short story by the master of existential storytelling, Franz Kafka (Czech Republic).
