Bristol Old Vic’s A MONSTER CALLS

Available now is The Old Vic and Bristol Old Vic co-production of A MONSTER CALLS.

“‘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 away. 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.

Adapted from the critically acclaimed bestseller by Patrick Ness, and directed by Sally Cookson (Peter PanLa Strada), this Olivier Award-winning production of A MONSTER CALLS offers a dazzling insight into love, life and healing.

GUIDANCE: Suitable for ages 10+ Contains themes of terminal illness, death and grief. Use of haze, strobe and loud sound effects
