From the creators of the acclaimed How To Build Your First Robot comes Walkinstown. A surreal soiree that traverses the streets of Dublin’s past, present and future. Two humans on a comedically cosmic trajectory, led by love, lust and all that’s elementary.

A staged anomaly, a melodramatic oddity. This is not a play. This, is a theatrical odyssey.

Monkey Backstage is a theatre company formulated in 2013. Keith-James Walker is the artistic director. The company’s first production was The Bear’s Tuxedo in Theatre Upstairs starring Kieran Roche and written by Keith-James Walker.
