ONE MONKEY DON'T STOP NO SHOW

By Don Evans

Charles David Brooks III, Director

November 17 - 18, 2016 at 7:00pm

Location: Ponder Fine Arts/Humanities Center Theatre

Synopsis

Columbia, SC -- November 8, 2016 -- The Benedict College will present “One Monkey Don’t Stop No Show” a new stage play directed by Mr. Charles David Brooks, III, Professor of Theatre and Director of Theatre Ensemble at Benedict College. The play will open at 7 p.m. on Thursday, November 17th with a performance continuing on November 18th at the Ponder Fine Arts/Humanities Center Theatre on the College main campus. The event is free and open to the general public.

The Benedict College Theatre Ensemble Student Production, One Monkey Don’t Stop No Show, reveals the struggles of people, places, and things that appears to be doing well when in fact things are in shambles and in need of serious Restoration. The African American playwright Don Evans was a leading figure of the Black Arts Movement in the 1960s and 70s, though his plays have never made much of an impact in this country. The Harrisons are a well-to-do family living in a desirable quarter of Philadelphia. "We have a place in society and I don't just mean black society," Mrs. Harrison declares. Yet the recent death of Mr. Harrisons' brother has left them with the stewardship of Beverly, a smart young girl from the rural south with a frank disregard of big-city stereotypes.

The collision of town and country has been a staple of satirical comedy since Molière, and Evans's play makes erudite reference to Restoration drama with its racy, rather confusing plot and cheeky licentiousness much of the action revolves around the hasty concealment of a copy of The Joy of Sex the Harrison's preppy teenage son has smuggled into the house, as Reviewed by Alfred Hickling.
