A Monster Calls Tour 2022

Based on Patrick Ness’s novel, A Monster Calls tour sets out in 2022 culminating in a season at Washington’s Kennedy Centre in May.

Jonathan Church Theatre Productions and Global Creatures have announced a tour of A Monster Calls. Directed by Sally Cookson and based on an idea by Siobhan Dowd, the A Monster Calls Tour launches at the Rose Theatre Kingston from 24 March 2022.

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 away. But now his mum is sick and 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, 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.

“We are so thrilled to be remounting our adaptation of A Monster Calls, especially at a time when young people are reeling from the effects of the Pandemic. The production shines a light on what it means to be a teenager in a tough world and uses the shared experience of theatre to remind us that we are not alone.”

A Monster Calls is directed by Sally Cookson, with Felix Hayes as Remount Director and Adam Peck as the writer in the room.  Set design is by Michael Vale, costume design by Katie Sykes, original music composed by Benji Bower, lighting by Aideen Malone, sound by Mike Beer, projection design by Dick Straker, movement direction by Dan Canham and aerial direction by Matt Costain, with Samuel Wood as associate director, aerial captain and swing and Raffaella Covino as associate movement director, dance captain and swing.  Casting is by Associate Casting Director, Abby Galvin, for Jessica Ronane Casting CDG.
