Toronto's Geekiest Theatre Company

Photos from both productions of ‘Godzilla on Sundays’, the show that brought Brad, Tim, Marty & DJ together into one Voltron-like creature!
There are few things I like more than monkeys and handsome lads dressed up as Godzilla. That's why I feel the need to pass on to you the newly launched website of Monkeyman Productions...

Since 2008, Monkeyman Productions has created postmodern theatre with real relevancy to a culture informed by comic books, monster movies, and video games. We speak in the language of an audience that has most truly found its voice in the meme-ridden YouTube-obsessed depths of the Internet. We draw from popular culture in the way that Shakespeare drew from the common culture of his day – these are our mythologies, our tales of comedy and tragedy.

Through the development and performance of work which examines our obsessions and preoccupations in the 21st Century, we hope to discover the ways in which we truly have changed, for better or worse, and the ways in which we remain the same – with a definite eye toward the absurd, but also a corresponding empathy for a subject matter that, in the end, encompasses all of us.
