Fourth Monkey’s Women of Greece: Pandora
Pandora carries a jar everywhere she goes believing she will not open it. Zeus looks down from above knowing that she will. Pandora lays the original myth bare for interrogation exploring themes of temptation, misogyny and femininity.

Fourth Monkey’s Women of Greece: Persephone
Persephone desperately struggles with bullies who make her life a misery, a mother who seems to have forgotten she exists and a force that wants to pull her into the underworld. A dark retelling of the myth of Persephone.
Written by Ami Sayers, directed by Ross McGregor & Will Pinchin.

Fourth Monkey’s Women of Greece: Medusa
Medusa is a monster who lives in a cave with only her sisters for company. Why are they there? Exploring the myth of Medusa and how she became what we believe her to be. A tale of persecution, jealousy and sexuality.
Written by Ezra Elia and directed by Ami Sayers.

The Janitor

Neon Panda

The curtain is down. The dust has settled. All is quiet, which suits the janitor just fine. He’s alone… An exploration of loneliness and lost dreams through unexpected companionship. The Janitor is a clown and movement piece, full of comedy and reminiscence.

Until their chance meeting on a night bus causes them to spiral into a world of love, pain and (mis)communication.

Grab ‘Em by the Pussy

A new fresh off the page show. A sassy surreal comedy musical about grabbing pussy.

In a world where women are objectified daily, in places they didn’t even know they had, Maisy is an outcast as she has never been touched. Bless her. Join Maisy on her quest to be fondled. Explore a world with a ridiculous cultural mood. It will be weird. It will be humorous. There will be songs such as ‘No One Will Let Me Blow Them’, ‘I Can Carry Heavy Objects Long Distances Without Needing a Rest’ and ‘Grab ‘Em by the Meow.’ There might even be a comedy dance routine or two. One thing is for sure it will be an hour of random fun!
