Synopsis

The Monster Under the Bed by Kevin Dyer

A funny and thrilling play about friendship and facing up to your fears, suitable for performances in schools, colleges, and youth theaters. There's a monster under Ben's bed. When Ben swaps places with the monster, Ben's life-and his school-is turned inside out and upside down.

Reviews

This energetic comedy for six to 11-year-olds is on at the Polka Theatre in South-West London until July 25. The script, unillustrated yet set in eye-friendly size text for easy following, will provide lots of raucous chuckles after the show. The play is about a boy called Ben, whose dad, a soldier, gives him a pair of binoculars before going off to war. When Ben's best friend Vince takes them, Ben swaps places with a monster to get them back and his day turns into a disaster. Drawing on The Borrowers and Roald Dahl's BFG, this is an imaginative new work from a diverse and experienced writer. Dyer's The Bomb, about the 1984 IRA Brighton explosion, won an Arts Council award. Whatsonstage.com
