Gloria is not a gorilla, but she is stuck in the zoo’s gorilla enclosure. 

After five years of living her best gorilla life, it’s finally time for her to leave her cage and re-enter the human world. Posey Mehta’s debut show is an absurd character comedy about being othered and lonely. Mehta is a Cambridge- and Gaulier-trained big fat idiot, who’s still dining out on the fact she made-out with Emma Corrin in a play once.
