6th February 2020 - 15th February 2020

Patrick Ness’s best-selling and critically acclaimed novel A Monster Calls (inspired by an idea by Siobhan Dowd) is brought vividly to life in this Olivier Award-winning production by visionary director Sally Cookson.

Thirteen-year-old Conor’s mum is sick, his grandmother won’t stop interfering and the kids at school won’t look him in the eye. Then, one night, he is woken by something at his window. A monster has come walking, to tell Conor tales from when it walked before. And when it’s finished, Conor must tell his own story and face his deepest fears.

A dazzling insight into love, life and healing. Suitable for ages 10+.
