Thats what one student writer in a creative writing program in the Chicago Public School System thinks, anyway one of 28 silly student writers who are providing material for a local theater group to perform in the 5th annual Celebration of Authors at Chicago, Illinois Neo Futurarium theater.
The name of the performance troupe is of course Barrel Of Monkeys and when the members arent helping kids in grades 3 to 5 get their comedy ideas to the stage, theyre producing alumni who go on to write for Saturday Night Live and Chicagos Second City.
According to Barrel Of Monkeys co-founder and artistic director Halena Kays, no subject is too silly.
Says Kays: Were working on a story now about a kid who cant stop laughing and cant stop swimming; so its kind of this insane story about obsessive compulsive behavior.
The annual performance and reception takes place June 12 and is free to the public.
