Monday 12 February: Monkey Business by Jane Gerson


Monkey Business is a quirky, bitter-sweet drama inspired by Steve Peters' book The Chimp Paradox.

It explores the idea that each of us has two brains - a human brain and a 'chimp' brain. Caroline is a communications professional and Lucy is her 'chimp'.

The story unfolds through their playful and stormy relationship. Set in contemporary London the play navigates the borders of mental health and mental breakdown."
