Monkey Bars

Chris Goode


Please note this book can take up to 10 days to be dispatched

'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.

Winner of a 2012 Fringe First Award.

'Excellent… Occasionally moving and somewhat satirical… sweet and funny.' – Time out

'Delightfully surreal… highly entertaining… Hilarious and poignant by turns' – Telegraph

'A funny, touching, diffuse look at The Big Questions... crisply perfect... It moves you. It makes you think. It makes you laugh and it makes you well up more than once.' ★★★★★What's on Stage

‘beautifully pitched… an eye-opening, refreshing pleasure’ – Independent

‘a small gem from eclectic polymath Chris Goode… This neatly crafted show is far removed from Michael Barrymore’s Kids Say the Funniest Things. Instead it’s simple, absorbing and at times beautiful’ – Evening Standard

‘Goode’s approach ends up being thought-provoking and complex, and satirical about adults… very entertaining’ – Independent on Sunday
