Chelsea Physic Garden

Chelsea Physic Garden, 66 Royal Hospital Rd, Chelsea, London SW3 4HS, UK
2 + 3 Oct | multiple performances throughout the day
Chelsea Physic Garden presents a unique performance of Claire Dowie's iconic series of touching and comedic monologues, The Year of the Monkey. Enjoy three of these monologues; Year of the Monkey, where a mother seeks to snap the monotony of her middle-class life; The Allotment, in which a community of pensioners accidentally create a radical commune; and Bonfire Night, in which a daughter looks for revenge.
This outdoor promenade theatre performance takes place in three settings within the Garden, each chosen to illuminate different elements of the play. The audience will be guided through the Garden to each performance. Seating for those with mobility issues can be provided, but the audience will otherwise stand throughout the performances. Performances will last around an hour but timings may vary.
In order to provide the safest possible experience, the audience size will be capped at 25 for each performance with three performances each hour. When booking, you will be asked to select your starting time-slot.
Should the event be unable to go ahead in person due to any future COVID restrictions, the event will not be cancelled and a live digital performance from the Garden will be provided on the chosen date.
This is a fundraising event with all profits going to the upkeep of the Garden.
