Background


'Monkey' was written by Offie-nominated David K. Barnes (Wooden Overcoats, Birthday Suit, Doctor Who) specifically for director John Rushton based on their decade of working together, and was previously presented as a work in progress at the Drayton Arms (alongside sister piece 'Timothy', which appeared at Vault 2018).

Synopsis


'Monkey' is a new dark comedy about an organ grinder, his wife, and their monkey.


A few months ago, you could have found Barbara leaping from tree to tree in the depths of a distant jungle.


Now she works for an organ grinder on the boardwalks of the English seaside, dancing for spare change and having a thoroughly miserable time.


Anxious, trapped and bored to tears, Barbara finds solace in the company of the organ grinder's wife - but can either of them escape from the lives they never wanted?


After all, people can't resist giving money to a monkey.
