"Esteemed members of the Academy! You have done me the great honour of inviting me to give you an account of my former life as an ape."

Imprisoned in a cage and desperate to escape, the ape-man reveals his rise through the ranks of the beasts to become a walking, talking, spitting, smoking, hard-drinking man of the stage.
