PlayKit | The Monkey King

Adapted for the stage by Shen Pei
Translated by Jeffrey Hatcher

The Jade Emperor & Empress are hosting a feast when suddenly, a monkey hatches from a rock & declares himself King, enraging heaven & earth. After the Emperor fails to to capture him, the Monkey challenges Buddha himself! Losing the battle, the Monkey's earthly adventures begin. Accompanied by a monk and two animal companions, the four set off on a quest which tests their character.
