Overview

Part of the 

strand.

A darkly comedic, subversive and uniquely realised road trip film about a monkey, a man and a dead man’s watch.

A woman escaping a toxic relationship ends up on the road in a monkey suit with a man seeking retribution from his dead father.

Co-written with Shenoah Allen, and produced and directed by Fringe stalwart Nina Conti, who also stars as a life-size iteration of her stand-up sidekick, this is fantastically absurd, original and funny. A natural, inventive extension of Conti’s sell-out comedy act.
