Conor has the same dream every night, ever since his mother first fell ill, ever since she started the treatments that don’t quite seem to be working. But tonight is different. Tonight, when he wakes, there’s a visitor at his window. An ancient, elemental force of nature, it demands the most dangerous thing of all from Conor. The truth.

Visionary director Sally Cookson based her darkly mischievous and painfully funny play, A Monster Calls on the bestselling novel by Patrick Ness, based on an idea given to him by the late, award-winning writer Siobhan Dowd. His extraordinary and heartbreaking novel was first adapted by Cookson for it’s 2018 debut at the Old Vic. A Monster Calls continues to weave its stunning story of love, loss and courage.
