Devised by Barrow Junior Youth Theatre and scripted by Sarah Miller with choreography by Fenfen Huang.

Performed at The Forum on 17th March 2009

During the autumn of 2008, our Junior Youth Theatre worked with Playwright Sarah Miller, Director Rachel Ashton and Dancer and Choreographer Fenfen Huang to adapt the ancient Chinese story of ‘Monkey’. The original story is a huge and complex epic not unlike ‘The Odyssey’. We chose to adapt just the first part of that story.
