One Monkey Don't Stop No Show by Don Evans

Ariyon Bakare and Janet Suzman in Dream of The Dog One Monkey Don't Stop No Show

Set in a middle-class upwardly mobile Black family in late 1970s Philadelphia, this exploration of class and gender finds the Reverend Avery Harrison (a Baptist preacher) clinging to his position in the local community. His upwardly mobile philosophy is avidly shared by his wife, Myra (an insightful reimagining of Mrs Malaprop), and by his son Felix, a “preppy”, privately educated college boy. But their comfortable world is shaken when Beverly, the only daughter of Avery’s recently deceased brother, arrives from the rural South. Her father has left her in the custody of Caleb Johnson, a street-wise, fast living man, but Beverly has other ideas.
