Experiment Human

Monkion has spent too long in the attic, obsessed with Benedict Cumberbatch, never talking to any other human - until now…

Suitable for Age 12 +

Come to the attic, meet the Monkions, join the experiment.


Blending dark comedy with the surreal, Experiment Human tells the story of Monkion, a non-human creature, curious to understand the strange world outside their laboratory in the attic. Having seized actor Benedict Cumberbatch at the height of his fame to protect him from the media, Monkion has failed to give Cumberbatch what he needs to survive.


Join Monkion in their new experiment: Experiment Human. Enter the narrative and the dark truth of Monkion's story will unfold…


Will the experiment succeed? What will happen if it doesn't?


We'll find out.

REVIEWS


★★★★ Everything Theatre ‘This surreal, quirky and at times bonkers show from Hooky Productions uses impressive comedy and outstanding physical performances to break down complex questions of what it means to be human.’


Richard Stamp (Founder of Fringe Guru) ‘Experiment Human is among the oddest shows I've seen, which makes it very odd indeed’


For previous work:

★★★★ Edfringe Review ‘it's all there, it's all utterly ridiculous, and it's all utterly fantastic’
