Monkeyshine Theatre was started by Kareen Pennefather and a group of university friends in 1999. Since then there has been quite a journey both creatively and geographically. Initially a street theatre company creating interactive impromptu theatre on the streets of Northern Ireland, Monkeyshine soon began to develop characters whose stories needed to be told and so, organically, shows began to develop. In 2004 James Jobson joined Monkeyshine Theatre. The company moved to the south of Ireland and began to establish a strong reputation as a pioneer in children’s theatre.

 

Monkeyshine Theatre are storytellers at heart, intrigued by the timeless structures of celebration and ritual, and the depth of myths and legends. They see theatre as an adventure following inspiration where it leads us. And the work is inspired by the quirks of human nature, the rhythms of the natural world and the universal themes of life that connect us all.
