Monkey Bars - theatre

Thu 26/05/16 - Fri 27/05/16 7:30 pm

 Monkey Bars is an award-winning verbatim show developed out of conversations with over 40 children aged between 7-10, conducted by Karl James (Director of the Dialogue project).
These conversations focus on moments in the children’s lives where they were scared, lost or brave and they explore their opinions of the adult world that surrounds and awaits them.
Writer/director Chris Goode and an ensemble of 6 actors worked with the full transcripts to transpose their exchanges into a variety of adult situations. This gives adult audiences a remarkable insight into what children are trying to tell us about their lives but the question is do we know how to listen?
This show will be performed by non-professional actors from Theatre Royal Winchester’s Silver Stage group.
