No Monkey Business: Push Me, Pull You

Grades RR to 3

05 February 2018 - 23 March 2018

No Monkey Business: Push Me, Pull You focuses on the issues of sharing, respect and bullying.

Mac gets a really ‘cool’ present for his birthday, and he can’t wait to show it off to Vanda - but when Vanda wants to play with it they have a disagreement and then a huge fight, and it breaks. Mac is so cross that he says some very nasty things and upsets Vanda a great deal and the friendship is “over”!

So Vanda makes a new friend, Oswald Ostrich, but Oswald doesn’t like Mac. He teases Mac ‘cause he looks funny (he’s not a bird, like they are), and bullies him, and finally takes away Mac’s present to play with. Things look quite black for Mac and Vanda for a while but fortunately, Thandi’s on hand to help heal the friendship. Then, when Vanda finally realises what Oswald’s doing and tries to stand up for Mac, Oswald pecks her and pulls out her feathers....but what Oswald doesn’t know is that friendship is stronger than nastiness - and bullies are cowards.

This show deals with sharing and respect, and examines the concepts of friendships, relationships, and personal feelings in relation to others. It also examines teasing and bullying, ‘racism’ and violence when you’re angry or upset. The feelings of all concerned are sensitively examined, and the audience are given practical solutions for how to act in similar circumstances, while clearly showing that fighting and violence are not the answer.

The intent is to further build on the notions of trust while introducing the ideas of respect and why ‘playing and working together’ is important.
