A Monster Calls

Thirteen-year-old Connor and his mum have been just fine since Connor's father moved to America, but now his mum is ill and isn't getting any better. Throw in some over-bearing Grandparents and some bullish school kids and Connor feels all alone - until he meets the monster of course.

At exactly seven minutes past midnight. Connor is awoken by something at his window. A monster has come walking. The Monster has come to tell Connor tales of the walks he's taken before but at the end of his stories Connor must tell the Monster a tale of his own and face his deepest fears.

A bestseller on its publication, Patrick Ness' novel now makes it to the stage in this highly anticipated adaptation from the Old Vic and the Bristol Old Vic that promises to capture the wonder and wisdom of the contemporary children's classic.

the spirit of music hall lives on - along with the spirits of doomed romance and wartime cinema, clipped vowels and buttoned-up exteriors, puppetry and Rachmaninov piano concertos - in this unstoppably entertaining exhumation of Emma Rice's greatest hit.
