Description

Two related plays: the monologue Tramp On Tightrope With Monkeys and its two character companion piece, Charlie And The Siberian Monkey Goddess, performed by two women when both plays are done together. When the monologue is done separately, may be played by either a man or a woman. An investigation of how one knows one's identity, and who gets to choose it, seen through the eyes of that shape shifting con man, Charlie Chaplin, or someone who believes very strongly they are him.
