Heâ€™s hairy, smelly and rude. He’s washed ashore in a distant land (The Grim North-East) . The locals have gone ape and accused him of being a Napoleonic spy, putting him on trial for treason… but he’s only a monkey.
Critically-acclaimed company The Heretical Historians present the absurd true story of ‘The Hartlepool Monkey’. Expect a hectic, hysterical, hilarious off-West End debut full of nationalism, epic dramatic set-pieces and low budget chaos.
Please note this show contains strobe lighting, adult language and themes, with comic violence. Suggested audience 16+.
Written & Directed by Matthew Jameson and The Heretical Historians.
Performed byÂ Leah Kirby, Bertie Cox, George Eddy, William Hastings, Matthew Jameson, Lloyd McDonagh, Salvatore Scarpa
