A monster hit

The Times

‘Stories are wild creatures, the monster said. When you let them loose, who knows what havoc they might wreak?’

Thirteen-year-old Conor and his mum have managed just fine since his dad moved. But now his mum is sick and not getting any better. His grandmother won’t stop interfering and the kids at school won’t look him in the eye. Then, one night, Conor is woken by something at his window. A monster has come walking. It’s come 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.

From the critically acclaimed bestseller, A Monster Calls offers a dazzling insight into love, life and healing. It garnered huge critical acclaim, including an unprecedented double win of the Carnegie and Greenaway Medals for outstanding children’s literature and illustration.

The UK tour of A Monster Calls will be providing an extensive outreach and engagement programme across the tour. This will include discussions, workshops, an education pack and participatory activities and events for local community groups and audiences addressing the widespread themes within the production. A Monster Calls will also be working in partnership with the national charity Kooth, to signpost support for young people affected by issues raised in the production.

Access performances including BSL, Audio Described, Captioned performances and Touch Tours will also be available across the tour.

This adaptation is suitable for adults and children aged 10+.

Jonathan Church Productions, Global Creatures and Chichester Festival Theatre present the UK tour of A Monster Calls.
An Old Vic production in association with Bristol Old Vic.
The UK tour of A Monster Calls is funded by Arts Council England.
