A World Premiere
Written by Henry Murray
Directed by John Perrin Flynn
Featuring Ron Bottitta, Patrick Flanagan, Amanda Mauer, David Mauer, Justin Okin, Jennifer Taub and Edward Tournier
Multi-award winning Rogue Machine launches its sixth world premiere production in Los Angeles. Monkey Adored, by the writer who captivated critics with his "visually and emotionally gripping" Treefall.
"This is a script that has been in my life for a long time. Slowly evolving through various readings at The Kennedy Center, Theatricum Botanicum, and a week-long workshop with The Inkwell Theatre in Washington, DC," reflects playwright Henry Murray. "I am very confident that Rogue Machine is the place to complete its development, with John Perrin Flynn at the helm."
The dog is in love with the monkey, who may be having an affair with the cat who's smitten with the rat...and let's not even talk about what the humans are up to. This allegorical and uniquely staged performance utilizes actors, puppetry, and projection in a collision of the comedic and the tragic. It is a tender love story that reeks of a ribald sex farce, set in a brutally violent world where compassion and understanding might still have a chance.
