An Old Vic production in association with Bristol Old Vic

WORLD PREMIERE PRODUCTION



"‘Stories are wild creatures', the monster said. ‘When you let them loose, who knows what havoc they might wreak?'"

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, ancient and wild, 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.

Patrick Ness' extraordinary and heartbreaking tale, A Monster Calls - international bestseller and major motion picture - is brought to the stage for the first time in a powerful new adaptation by visionary director Sally Cookson (Jane Eyre, Peter Pan, Sleeping Beauty).

On publication, A Monster Calls became a firm favourite with children and adults alike with its dazzling insight into love, loss, hope 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 (Jim Kay, Harry Potter).

In summer 2016 we began redevelopment works to transform our Front of House entrance on King Street into a welcoming, vibrant space that everyone will be able to enjoy. During this time, it will be business as usual in the Theatre with our brilliant programme on offer, however there are a few changes to how we'll be operating.

Theatre Entrance

You are now invited to enter the Theatre through our Stage Door, walking in the footsteps of theatre legends such as Peter O'Toole, Daniel Day-Lewis and Miranda Richardson.

Our temporary Theatre entrance can be accessed via Rackhay (BS1 4HJ) off Queen Charlotte Street, around the corner from King Street.

Ticket Collection

On performance days, tickets can be collected from Box Office situated in our Backstage Bar opening 90 mins prior to each performance.
