Circle X Theatre Co. is based in Los Angeles. They write:

We received a grant that supported Circle X Theatre Co.’s 2015 production of “Trevor“, by Nick Jones. “Trevor” explores the way humans interact with and commercialize great apes. The production was one of the most successful in our history and appeared in the LA Times Critic’s Choice review. The funding went directly into production costs to help us tell this story, which challenges audience members to examine their attitudes toward great apes in entertainment by focusing on the perspective of Trevor, a chimpanzee who has “aged out” of show business and struggles to understand his place within human society.
