Chicago sketch comedy group Barrel of Monkeys takes poetry written by youth in Words@PLAY and transforms it into vignettes and songs. The result is a zany and inspiring performance, studded with wondrous moments and stop-you-in-your-tracks kid insights. Words@PLAY is the Chicago Humanities Festival and the Chicago Park District’s nationally recognized poetry program for young people.

Recommended for ages 6 and up.
