A blisteringly funny black comedy about the perils awaiting any unsuspecting home-owner.

A young couple settling into their new home are visited by two door-to-door salesmen whose nightmare sales pitch threatens the very foundation of their life together.

Simon Block’s play Chimps was first staged at Hampstead Theatre, London, in July 1997.

This revised edition of the play was published alongside the Liverpool Playhouse revival in 2005.

‘Like David Mamet, Block’s observations and the strung-out tension as Mark and Stevie struggle to sort out their differences in the jaws of a brilliantly sprung trap is thrillingly unbearable’

‘Gripping, fast, darkly comic and blessed with terrific dialogue’
Daily Telegraph

‘A savage cautionary tale’
