“Writing is slick…sizzles with energy and is a relevant, punchy piece” Underdog ★★★★
Meet Girl & Gorilla, handcuffed in a world of patriarchal gaze. Girl is shaved, Gorilla is hairy. This is a problem. One they can’t solve easily.
Girl & Gorilla have been together forever, but hairiness has become a fundamental issue. Where once existed friendship, now antagonism rules. Girl is compulsive about removing all traces of hair – an impossible task when handcuffed to Gorilla. The key disappeared long ago. They are unavoidably stuck together. How do they co-exist, and is this the day that will change everything?
