The top deck of a bus creates an unusual, but well staged, space for this intriguing love story. Through a series of vignettes, delivered quite conversationally, the beginning, development and end of a relationship is mapped out, serenaded by a singing monkey. Even though the writing is beautiful in parts, engaging with strong metaphors, this play is not quite quirky enough to forgive the limited dramatic action, or emotionally rich enough to sustain the engagement it seeks.
