More Information about A Monster Calls

★★★★★ "a monster hit" "Bring the kids, the parents, your friends and neighbours. This strange, soaring yet miraculously unsentimental adaptation of Patrick Ness's book needs seeing. It is heartbreaking, spectacular, harsh, happy." THE TIMES
'Stories are wild creatures, the monster said. When you let them loose, who knows what havoc they might wreak?' Patrick Ness's piercing novel A Monster Calls is brought to The Old Vic stage in a powerful new adaptation by visionary director Sally Cookson. Thirteen-year-old Conor and his mum have managed just fine since his dad moved to America. But now his mum's very sick and she's 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, at seven minutes past midnight, 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. On publication, A Monster Calls became a bestseller with children and adults alike with its dazzling insight into love, loss and healing. It garnered huge critical acclaim, including an unprecedented double win of the Carnegie and Greenaway Medals for outstanding children's literature and illustration.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favourite by a long way ... Having read the book I was curious to see how it would be adapted for the stage. All I can say is this was inspired directing and the acting was out of this world! I and my daughter were truly moved by the sincerity of this play and I would recommend it to those who have read the book and those that haven't. Wonderful....
