    Based on the classic Chinese stories, this exciting world premiere script is a ripping ride full of comedy, drama, adventure, music, martial arts and acrobatics. Sun Wukong (the Monkey King) has supernatural powers, but when his kingdom is overrun by demons, he sets out to become immortal. But his talents and unconventional behavior clash with authority figures, and he finds himself on the wrong side of some powerful gods and demons. When even his sworn brother Erlang turns against him, the goddess Jinxing is forced to choose between her true love and her best friend. A terrific story for all free-spirited individuals struggling to find a place in a hierarchical world.
