Family-friendly monkey business
The puppeteers who helped bring War Horse to life are behind a new family-friendly play based on the 200-year-old legend of the Hartlepool Monkey. A ship was wrecked off the Durham coast with a monkey on board.
The locals thought the monkey was a Frenchman, and tried it as a spy. The show comes to the Theatre Royal, Margate, on Friday, November 10 and Saturday, November 11.
Suitable for ages 10 and over, tickets cost £15. To book visit theatreroyalmargate.com or call 01843 292795.
