Something comes up. A problem, a challenge, maybe even a threat. You’re not sure what to do about it? How to react? What’s best? Follow your feelings, right? Or do you just listen to your logic? Be rational about it … or be instinctive? Emotion or reason? You have both in you for some purpose, right? Monkey Business is a comedy about this duality that is in us all.
Balancing these two often contradictory traits. That’s always hard, especially in your teens or early twenties.
It certainly is for our hero, George, a student at high school or university (depending on which script we follow) who is struggling with his inner animal instincts. He literally lives with them daily.
Really literally: they have personified themselves into a tangible corporal alter ego, a twin that physically accompanies George everywhere, always, waking and sleeping.
Monkey Business is a comedy play about their interaction together; George and his “inner ape” as he calls it, as they battle through the normal everyday problems that George encounters in his life.
Monkey Business is a highly adaptable, interactive comedy in our house style.
