A Monster Calls
Thursday 23rd and Friday 24th March 2023
A Monster Calls 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. Conor has the same dream every night, ever since his mother first fell ill. But tonight is different. Tonight, when he wakes, there’s a monster at his window. It’s elemental, a force of nature and it wants something from Conor. It wants the truth.
Trigger Warnings: This performance deals with adult themes such as guilt and the loss of loved ones related to Cancer. A Monster Calls is recommended for those aged 10 and up.
