About the Show/Event

The Hartlepool Monkey
Information for The Hartlepool Monkey at Exeter Phoenix, Exeter (Play). An adventure story and dark comedy for sea dogs, landlubbers, children and adults alike. A French ship runs aground off the coast of England. Only a cabin girl and the ship's mascot, a chimpanzee, survive and make it to shore. But the townsfolk mistake the monkey, in its military uniform, for a spy, and condemn him to a life-or-death trial. What will the verdict be? Can the local children save the day? The legend of The Hartlepool Monkey has survived the test of time, capturing the imagination of people of all ages for over 200 years. A boisterous crew tell this timely tale through spirited sea shanties and mischievous puppetry from Gyre & Gimble, original puppeteers on War Horse and the team behind Running Wild.
Approximate runtime 80minutes (including any interval).
Age Advisory: 10+
Performers Rebecca Collingwood, Fred Davis, Jonathan Dryden Taylor, James Duke, Baker Mukasa, Rachel Sanders, John Trindle.
Author Carl Grose. Presented by Gyre & Gimble. Company Fuel Theatre (in association with Stratford Circus Arts Centre).
