Men, Love and the Monkey Boy

By Caleb Lewis

It’s time to sort the men from the monkeys. Phillip spends his days studying primate behavior. His special subject? The Gorilla, man’s second closest cousin. He need not look far for inspiration.

His father, Robbo, is 55 going on 16; forever ‘one of the boys’; brother-in-law Dave has lost his sex drive since his wife’s promotion; and best mate Rex seems determined to ‘nail’ every bird in town.

With role models like these, what’s a boy to do when he meets a nice girl? Will he rise above the monkey business and woo her like a gentleman? Or does he employ gorilla tactics to land his mate? Will he emerge as a champ, chump or chimp?

From the pen of Caleb Lewis (Nailed, Rocketbaby and Dogfall) Men, Love and the Monkeyboy is a hilarious satire on fathers, sons and male bonding. Delving into the way men see themselves and see each other, the way they love and the way they hurt. You’ll start to wonder if we’ll ever make it out of the jungle.

Presented by Darlinghurst Theatre Company, Riverside Productions and Shaman Productions
