Global Creatures, Jonathan Church Productions and Chichester Festival Theatre have announced full casting for the UK tour of ‘A Monster Calls‘, an Old Vic production, in association with Bristol Old Vic, which will be touring to 16 venues across the UK from February 2020.

Patrick Ness’ acclaimed novel is brought vividly to life in this Olivier Award-winning production from visionary director Sally Cookson.

Thirteen-year-old Conor and his mum have managed just fine since his dad moved away. But now his mum is sick andnot 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.

The UK tour of ‘A Monster Calls‘ will be providing an extensive outreach and engagement programme across the tour. This will include discussions, workshops, an education pack and participatory activities and events for local community groups and audiences addressing the widespread themes within the production.

A Monster Calls‘ will be working with Kooth (kooth.com), a free and anonymous online counselling and emotional wellbeing support service for children and young people available in many areas throughout the country.

Access performances including BSL, Audio Described, Captioned performances and Touch Tours will also be available across the tour.
