Reviews of Fourth Monkey’s 2013 Trinity Buoy Wharf season:

‘This is how site-specific theatre should be done.’ ***** A Younger Theatre on Project Colony

‘Fourth Monkey, once again, reinvents a classic text into an ambitious physical theatre piece.’ The Stage on Paradise Lost 


Based in London, multi-award nominated Fourth Monkey Theatre Company has evolved to become one of the most innovative actor training providers operating in the country today. The company offers a relevant, contemporary and forward-thinking training for actors across two courses of one or two years, with an emphasis on repertory theatre. Fourth Monkey has forged a viable path, subsequently followed by organisations such as the National Youth Theatre, for those looking for an alternative to traditional conservatoire training as a means of entering the industry.

Fourth Monkey will visit Trinity Buoy Wharf again in June with students from its Two-Year Rep Actor Training Programme for a short season of two Greek plays (details TBC).
