Southwark Playhouse Elders Company present
by Chris Goode
When you’re a chid 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 over seventy young children to talk about their lives.
In Monkey Bars, their words are spoken by adults – playing adults in adult situations.
Southwark Playhouse Elders Company revive this revelatory verbatim show that’s funny, touching and endlessly surprising.
This production is presented by arrangement with Chris Goode and Company.
