Experience
Spymonkey
(Main | Aug.14.2003 - Aug.2005)


Through a series of scene transitions, this comedic quartet supplies the counterpoint to all that is erotic and provocative about ZUMANITY. In a show filled with serious sexual tension, Spymonkey is a reminder of the importance of having a laugh at ourselves and having fun in the bedroom!

Spymonkey, the Brighton(UK)-based theater group, provided their talents to create a few original comedic acts for Zumanity. These include:

  • The Puritans — No sooner are we welcomed to Zumanity than the theaer is invaded by Puritans who are opposed to such wanton displays of carnal sin. Dressed in pilgrim costumes, the show's resident "clowns" wield pitchforks with protest placards attached, pleading with the audience to leave: "Do you want to be aroused in a public place?" one of the Puritans shouts censoriously at the show's start. ("Yeah!" the crowd usually roars back, as forcefully as a Roman mob choosing lions over Christians.) "Are you prepared for the appalling debauchery about to commence?" (Yeah, you know the answer.) "You can still save your souls!" they exclaim, as they are escorted out of the theater by security.

  • Revenge of the Doll — Here one of the "Puritans" carries a blow-up sex doll on stage. When the others chastise him for it he runs off, returns carrying a larger doll and takes a seat in the audience. The doll then comes to life and starts to chase the puritan around the theatre. The others briefly emerge on stage to quickly spoof some of the preceding acts with visual gags (much like a short version of the Dralion clown act).

  • S&M Hoedown — A lively folk dance about pain as a sexual stimulant.

  • Pom Poms — The four former prudes carry only cheerleader style pom-poms placed to strategically conceal their "nudity." In a Vaudeville style comedy act the four Spymonkeys line up in a row and march to the music while quickly switching the positions of the pom poms; at times not quick enough to seamlessly hide their (prosthetic) genitals.
