Gorilla Man is a theatrical spectacle about a boy becoming a monster. Filled with bombastic rock songs and peopled with lonely freaks, Gorilla Man is a pulse-pounding mix of comedy, concert, and carnival.

Waking one morning to find fur growing on the backs of his hands, young Billy discovers the awful truth his mother has been hiding from him for 14 years. Cast from his home, he sets out on a journey to find his father, the legendary Gorilla Man. Combining influences as diverse as Tod Browning, Tom Sawyer, and T. Rex, Gorilla Man is a strikingly original new rock musical.

A darkly comic coming-of-age tale that explores issues of violence, identity, and free will against the backdrop of a warped American landscape.
