When you’re a child you don’t really think… cos you like to live like a child.
Doesn’t really seem you’re just going to be an adult.
Like time flies by and you just want… to, like, stay as a child,
but you just enjoy things, the way it goes.
Award-winning writer Chris Goode asked forty eight- to ten-year-olds to talk about their lives. About being scared, getting lost, being brave, growing up. About the adult world that surrounds and awaits them. About family and faith and their favourite sweets.
In Monkey Bars, their words are spoken by adults – playing adults in adult situations.
Monkey Bars is a funny and endlessly surprising verbatim show which offers a revelatory insight into what children are trying to tell us about their lives that we don’t always hear.
Starring: Gwyneth Strong – Cassandra (Only fools & horses), Gordon Warnecke played lead opposite DD Lewis in My Beautiful Laundrette, Angela Clerkin appeared in The Office
