Win a family ticket to the new show from the puppeteers behind War Horse!
Gyre and Gimble are bringing their new show, The Hartlepool Monkey, to Exeter Phoenix on 7 & 8 Nov and we’re giving away free tickets for a family of four!
When a French ship runs aground off the English coast, a cabin girl and the ship’s chimpanzee mascot, reach the shores of Hartlepool. The townsfolk, mistaking the chimp for a spy, stage a life or death trial to uncover the truth.
The Hartlepool Monkey is a legendary adventure story for sea dogs and landlubbers, children and adults alike.
What The reviewers are saying
‘It is an often hectic, frequently funny and boldly theatrical presentation’
BRITISH THEATRE GUIDE
‘The cast, a crack team of engaging performers, draws attention to the story’s foregone conclusion from the outset, while highlighting its pertinence to today’s climate of xenophobia, ignorance and fear.’
‘Gyre and Gimble’s retelling of the Hartlepool Monkey legend is highly skilful, slick and unsettling.’
