InterAct Story Theatre presents a play for kids and families about working together to take care of your community. 

How do you solve a problem that affects everyone when no one wants to help? InterAct Story Theatre asks that question and more at the MC Cultural Arts Center in Takoma Park/Silver Spring with Not My Monkey, an interactive theatrical experience for kids and families about cooperation and working together in your own community. What happens when everyone in a community decides that it’s really not their job to solve the problems they see? Everything’s topsy-turvy under the big top, and the monkeys have run amok at the circus! The leader of the circus tries to solve the problem, but everyone is pointing fingers, and no one wants to help: “Not my circus, not my monkeys. It’s YOUR problem, YOU figure it out!” How do you solve a problem that affects everyone when no one wants to help? Can they figure it out before monkeys turn the town upside down?
