A Brand New Stage Adaptation

After leaving London audiences spellbound, Sally Cookson's stage adaptation of Patrick Ness' classic novel A Monster Calls heads to the Kennedy Center in 2022! A piercing tale of love, loss, and healing A Monster Calls received much critical acclaim during its run at London's iconic Old Vic Theatre.

Upon its release in 2011 Ness' A Monster Calls became an instant bestseller. A perfect story for both children and adults, A Monster Calls received both the Carnegie and Greenway Medals for outstanding Children's literature and illustration. 

With a stage adaptation that is sure to mirror the novel's success, don't miss your chance to see A Monster Calls in Washington!

What is A Moster Calls about?

Thirteen-year-old Connor and his mum have been just fine since Connor's father moved to America, but now his mum is ill and isn't getting any better. Throw in some over-bearing Grandparents and some bullish school kids and Connor feels all alone - until he meets the monster of course. 

At exactly seven minutes past midnight. Connor is awoken by something at his window. A monster has come walking. The Monster has come to tell Connor tales of the walks he's taken before but at the end of his stories Connor must tell the Monster a tale of his own and face his deepest fears.
