‘This is a story about a boy, and a girl. Some of the story is true. Some of it isn’t. And I’m not going to tell you which is which…’
What happens to us as the red mist descends? Everyone has felt the prickle of anger, so why do some men lash out while others stay in control? Monster is a thrilling new performance about violence and masculinity, from internationally-acclaimed Worklight Theatre.
Written and performed by Joe Sellman-Leava. Directed by Yaz Al-Shaater.
