Year of the Monkey 2020 – 2021 Final Shows
Join us in celebrating the work of our Year of the Monkey 2020 – 2021 students, as they share their Final Shows live from the Monkey House.
Nothing happens in Grover’s Corners, but everything happens: the sun rises and sets, the choir rehearses, the school bell rings and Emily and George fall in love. In an ordinary town where nothing much changes Thornton Wilder’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play really exemplifies that ‘You’ve got to love life to have life, and you’ve got to have life to love life’.
Langurs Group directed by Louise McMenemy
Howlers Group directed by Sonnie Beckett & Anna Blackburn
Ella and the Tree
Ela and the Tree merges a variety of physical theatre practises, including puppetry and live music, to share the struggle of one girl growing up with a powerful imagination. Set in the 1950s, the imaginary world becomes blurred with reality as Ela navigates the stepping stones of life.
Performed by the Langurs Group, directed by Luke Chadwick-Jones
The Voyage of the Iscariot
A small cargo ship sets out of a port in India. It’s purpose is simple: To loop around Africa and carry spices to Britain. The ship is never seen again. Join Captain Bell and the crew of the Iscariot as they grapple with bad omens, mutiny and the great storm beginning to grow on the horizon.
Performed by the Howlers Group, directed by Luke Chadwick-Jones
