Scene 1, Gorilla Girl – Meeting of Keith and Catherine
Gorilla Girl, had its first reading at ArtsPlace, Lexington, KY, on September 7, 2018 or 07/09/18 as Keith in the play would argue. The actors who served as readers brought the characters to life and if the comments are any indication, Gorilla Girl will have a long life on a stage near you in the future. Stay tuned for video clips. Thanks to: Emma Grace Imes, Isaac Barnes, Elena Newburg and Jeanine Lister for bringing to life the complex relationships of Catherine, Keith and Nikki.
A strong, challenging play that deserves a production.
I already told one of my friends about the story and invited her when the play comes to stage.
The dialogue was spot on.
I think people will relate…because being in a situation like either of them are in can make you do and say things you never thought you would
It was a well told story that sucked me in and I really wanted to know what happened next. It feels very real and if you’ve ever dated someone in today’s modern age, very familiar and relatable.
Interesting how you’ve put “married relationships,” as well as other ideas Western society upholds, under the light.
A reading of the play, Gorilla Girl. This is the latest play by Catherine Rhoden-Goguen. Your feedback would be greatly appreciated as well as your attendance. The play is for adult audiences and contains language and situations not suited for a younger audience.
The play follows the relationship of a couple who meet in a chat room. It challenges the way relationships are viewed in Western Culture and will leave you debating, who is the real villain. If you like plays that give you something to talk and think about, Gorilla Girl is definitely for you.
3 Readers needed. 2 female and 1 male. If interested in being a reader, please let me know. An Australian accent for the male would be wonderful!
You may bring food/drink so don’t let meal plans keep you from attending.
