Monkey Poet's Murder Mystery - T1052695183

Murder Mystery's riotous opening act takes us on a journey through poetry, suspense and comedy as Monkey Poet shifts characters from Bukowski to Wilde to Shakespeare to Homer, as he tries to solve a murder whilst wooing Sylvia Plath. The second act, Monkey Poet's Potty Mouth, tackles the birth, use and misuse of language and is stand up poetry at its funniest and finest.

Act 1 - Welcome...to Afghanistan - T0262927936

1838, 1878, 2001... In the last two centuries, Britain has been involved in three brutal wars in Afghanistan. In this new blacker-than-black comedy, Monkey Poet (aka stand-up rhymster Matt Panesh) jumps back in time to the 1830s and our first and most disastrous Afghan war. Drawing on actual eye witness testimony, he weaves a vivid tale of cynical politicians, bumbling generals and weary squaddies. Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it. Performed in a double bill with Monkey Poet's Welcome to the UK!, a hilarious look at modern Britain.
