Little Light - 2015
It is winter and snow covers the land. Warm in their cozy house, a family waits for the days to grow longer and spring to arrive. But one day the Sun doesn’t rise. When it doesn’t rise the next day or the next & Darkness settles in to stay, they realise someone has stolen the Sun!

Reviews & Comments
I have great respect for Monkeyshine Theatre because of their dedication to learn and explore and further their craft as an organization. Most important is the willingness to be open to collaborative work by inviting others to stretch their boundaries, to share ideas and resources. Monkeyshine Theatre is fresh and exciting.
Programme Director Baboro International Arts Festival for Children
Monkeyshine is one of my favourite Irish theatre companies.
I always find their work original and very entertaining. It is so well pitched for the age ranges it covers and their attention to detail and inventiveness is outstanding within the international scene.
I offer them my wholehearted support and believe they deserve a wonderful future for the company and its aspirations in entertaining and delivering first class theatre for children. They are an Irish treasure.
