Critically acclaimed Mischief Makers, The Heretical Historians, present the ridiculous true story of 'The Hartlepool Monkey'.
He’s hairy, smelly and rude. He's washed ashore in a distant land (The Grim North-East) where the locals go ape and accuse him of being a Napoleonic spy, putting him on trial for treason… but he's only a monkey.
A hectic, hysterical, hilarious hour of nationalism, epic dramatic set-pieces and low budget chaos. A punky farce perfect to end your evening's fringe!

«Not for nothing is this theatrical group called ‘The Heretical Historians’… It’s cleverly written, even for those who aren’t particularly appreciative of the show’s style of humour… There’s something of the stage adaptation of The 39 Steps about this production, both in terms of its purposefully cheap set (some expense has, at least, gone into the costumes) and almost relentlessly brisk pacing.» — ★★★★ London Theatre 1
