Monkey ! a Tale from China Paperback / softback

Part of the PLAYS FOR YOUNG PEOPLE series


Monkey magic! The tale of the roguish Monkey and his exploits on a fabulous journey to India is one of the most popular classics in Asian literature.

Monkey has been imprisoned in a mountain because of the chaos he has wrought in heaven.

To be redeemed, he must guide the Buddhist monk Triptaka from China, through the Himalayas, on a mystical quest in search of sacred scriptures.

Helped by two friends, Pigsy and Sandy, he encounters demons, spirits, dragons and gods on a riotous road trip to enlightenment.

With its mix of energetic kung-fu action, mischievous hero and cast of fantastically colourful characters Monkey is an adventure to enchant everyone aged seven and above.

First performed at the Young Vic Theatre in November 2001.
