MONKEYBOY is adapted from the short story INTERIOR; MONKEYBOY by Patrick Flanery (Granta 2016).

Couple, Aaron and Edward, yearning to be parents, are thrown into chaos by the arrival of Romeo, a troubled child from the care system.
In a battle between their idealized dream, and the appalling fractured reality, they both struggle to survive the onslaught of the vulnerable child who they cannot now fail. Lucy Campbell’s screenplay MONKEYBOY was developed on Creative Skillset/BFI funded screenwriting programme ADAPT TO FILM (Anna Siefert Speck and Caroline Cooper Charles) and shortlisted for Sundance Writers’ Lab 2018.
