2020 Productions

Our Class of 2020 graduates adapted to working under new circumstances throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and national lockdown as they approached the end of their training with Fourth Monkey.
 
The temporary closure of our training base meant we were unable to hold in-person rehearsals or invite in-person audiences to upcoming production seasons, so the unique decision was made to extend the year and give our graduating year group the opportunity to share their work via a series of recorded and livestream performances once lockdown measures were relaxed.
