Based on the novel by Patrick Ness and inspired by an original idea by Siobhan Dowd, devised by Sally Cookson, Adam Peck and the Company
'Stories are wild creatures', the monster said. 'When you let them loose, who knows what havoc they might wreak?'
Patrick Ness' piercing novel is brought vividly to life in this Olivier Award-winning production by director Daniel Jenkins and performed by the graduation class of The Young Company 2022.
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.
