Screen Story #29: "The Smartest Chimp in the World"

In my latest short screenplay, a precocious primate has to deal with some common human problems. This 18-page screenplay is available only as a PDF file (66k).

It was clear from the beginning Lulu wasn’t an ordinary chimp. She rated very high on the Sheppard Scale. I mean off the charts for a primate, virtually the equivalent of a human infant in raw learning ability. Everything clicked. We were ready, and Lulu was ready, and the initial funding was there, so we brought her back here and essentially built the institute around her.
