Brodie, a gifted research linguist, is expecting her first child. When she receives unsettling news about the baby she carries, her girlfriend is unsympathetic and the medical profession provides few answers.
Her search for guidance leads her to two unlikely sources: the elderly speaker of a vanishing language…and a gorilla at the zoo.
Madeleine George’s irreverent, witty and startlingly original play reveals the beauty and the limits of human language.
Produced by the same team behind the five star and Offie nominated productions of Kes and Lifeboat.
A crisp, fast-moving, tough-minded but often comic play about love, language, memory, culture and commitment. Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

It’s a beautiful piece of theatre. Subtle, engaging and deeply touching…This is the Jack team doing what they do best and once again producing a diamond. Heartfelt and elegant, it is yet further proof that the Brockley Jack is one of the best theatres in London. ★★★★★ Spy in the Stalls on Kes
Kate Bannister has done a fantastic job with this production of Kes. Karl Swinyard’s set is ingenious. The lighting design and sound of Ben Jacobs and Jack Barton are spot on. It really is a wonderful evening… the acting is exemplary as is the direction. The Brockley Jack can be enormously proud of this production. ★★★★★ London Pub Theatres
This is as good as it gets in the theatre anywhere – a fringe triumph in every sense. ★★★★★ Reviewsgate on Kes
