by W.W. Jacobs

Adapted by Wendy Lewis

 October 2021


Cast needed: Cast: 3 males, 2 females and 2 that can be either


This updated version by Wendy Lewis of “The Monkey's Paw” is based on the suspenseful short story by W.W. Jacobs. It involves Mr. and Mrs. White and their adult son a-waiting the arrival of Sergeant-Major Morris, a friend who served with Mr. White in Afghanistan. After Morris retired from the military his travels took him to India. He introduces them to a mummified monkey's paw. An old fakir placed a spell on the paw, so that it would grant three wishes. The wishes are granted but always with hellish consequences as punishment for tampering with fate. Morris, having had a horrible experience using the paw, throws the monkey's paw into the fire but Mr. White retrieves it. Before leaving, Morris warns Mr. White that if he does use the paw, then it will be on his own head. The rest of the play deals with the choices and consequences of the White family. A suspenseful climax rounds out the story. 

Produced by special arrangement with Wendy Lewis.
