Monkey Business was written in Singapore where imaginative play is undervalued. The play is therefore an entertainment on the importance of play and the imagination to balance and refresh after work and study. Using humour, childhood games and references to popular culture, four friends - two sisters and a sister and a brother - launch into sections of extended play: first with just themselves and their imagination, and then through the transformation of everyday objects - shoes, plastic bags and a rubber band string. In between, they address the audience in rhythmic verse. The play concludes with shared verse on the importance of dreams, using a large black cloth to create beautiful images.
