A Monster Calls

A major stage adaptation of Patrick Ness' A Monster Calls in London for a strictly limited two month season

Thirteen-year-old Conor and his mum have managed just fine since his dad moved to America. But now his mumís very sick and sheís not getting any better. His grandmother wonít stop interfering and the kids at school wonít look him in the eye. Then, one night, at seven minutes past midnight, Conor is woken by something at his window. A monster has come walking. Itís come to tell Conor tales from when it walked before. And when itís finished, Conor must tell his own story and face his deepest fears.

Please note: Recommended for ages 10 and above

Directed by Sally Cookson. A co-production with the Bristol Old Vic Theatre. Devised by the company from the novel by Patrick Ness, inspired by an idea by Siobhan Dowd.
