About The Play

A Monster Calls

Conor has been having nightmares. 
In fact, he’s been having the exact same nightmare every night. 
Ever since his mother first fell ill. 
Ever since she started those treatments that don’t quite seem to be working…

But tonight is different.  

Because tonight, when he wakes, there’s a visitor at his window.
And it wants just one thing from Conor.
Just one little thing.
The most dangerous thing of all.

The final idea of the late, award-winning writer Siobhan Dowd, Patrick Ness’s  bestselling novel by is brought to the stage to tell the stunning story of courage and contradiction.
