Burning Monkey by Sera Moore Williams is a compelling drama that raises important issues for teenagers, addressing themes such as war, violence, separated families and responsibilities.
In the background, the presence of war looms; the character of Old is haunted by his memories of his time as a soldier and the character of Monkey looks forward to the time when he can escape the depressing realities of his life and join the army. In the midst of this, Shell is fifteen,madly in love with Monkey, and pregnant with his child.
The style of drama is direct with humour throughout which is typical of the company’s work for young audiences. Please note that this drama is one of the titles for GCSE Drama and also appropriate for PSE lessons.
Location: The Pop Up Tea Room, Blandy Hall, Laleston
