A Monster Calls is brought vividly to life in the Olivier award-winning production by visionary director Sally Cookson.

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.

Exploring the Monster

This 1.5 hour workshop will enable participants to explore the themes and content of A Monster Calls through either creative writing or drama activities. It can be tailored to the specific age range of participants and will encourage participants to develop their critical thinking about both the story and the characters. Participants will gain a unique insight into the production, through practically exploring a range of creative writing or drama activities.

There will also be a Q&A with members of the company following the Thursday matinee.
