Year of the Monkey

Sharing and Staged Reading

About the Show

12-2pm Content-devising workshop, led by director Caitlin Wells & current collaborators

3pm Sharing & staged reading of Year of the Monkey

Delta Boys is a nonhierarchical company fresh outta the South that's currently developing a new work with playwright Mara Thomas for a full production at The Tank in spring of 2019. Tentatively titled Year of the Monkey, this devised play is a surreal horror show centered on a squadron of warriors who use their feminine intuition/rage/rituals/nature power to wage war against the patriarchy--in the jungle--in 1968. Think Audre Lorde and Clarissa Pinkola Est├ęs do Apocalypse Now.

Here's where y'all come in. SHOW UP AT NOON for a 2-hour workshop to get yer hands dirty and create content with us around femininity, violence, instinct, and the wild, then stay for a sharing and staged reading of the current script of Year of the Monkey at 3. Heck, we may even rope you into the next stages of this beast of a project!
