‘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 teamed up with Karl James (The Dialogue Project) to ask thirty 8-10 year olds to talk about their lives, their thoughts, their world. In Monkey Bars their words are spoken by adults. Not adults playing children, but adults playing adults, in adult situations. Monkey Bars is a revelatory verbatim show that is funny, touching and endlessly surprising.
