One of Monkeywood’s primary company aims is to engage meaningfully with audiences and participants who do not usually go to the theatre. We make this happen in two key ways:
1. We seek out and engage with relevant groups to research new plays and invite them to contribute at key points in its development
2. We design bespoke projects to accompany our productions, offering unique artistic opportunities to groups who would not usually access the arts
Thanks for yesterday – it was great. The lads were raving about it after the session and keen to do some more stuff like it in the future.

We all thought the production was amazing and the content of the play was really true to our experience of young parents and their lives. I thought the production was really powerful and kept on thinking about it over the following few days.
