ONE MONKEY DONT

STOP NO SHOW

Written by Don Evans

May 29th-June 14th, 2020

Set in 1970s Philadelphia, the play deals with the clash of values between middle-class and working-class African Americans. Reverend Avery Harrison clings tenaciously to his position in the local black elite. His upwardly mobile philosophy is avidly shared by his wife, Myra and by his son, Felix, a strictly brought up private school product who has suddenly discovered the joys of sex, thanks to a surreptitiously studied manual. When the Reverend's countrified niece Beverly arrives from the rural South hilarious complications ensue in this fun loving comedy.
