Pupil Review – A Monster Calls


On 6th March, many of our Year 9 English students went to Runshaw College to watch the fantastic play, A Monster Calls. This story is based around a girl, Connie, whose mum is suffering with cancer, and her life goes to pieces. In the play Connie is told three tales, the fourth being hers and at the end of the play Connie realises each tale told her a moral story of the darkness of life.

The Drama students at Runshaw performed this play. Personally, I think that this was a great play to watch and kept me on the edge of my seat the whole show. It was a very hard-hitting performance and I believe the Runshaw students did an absolutely fantastic job. We give a massive thank you to Runshaw College for kindly letting us come and visit, and we thank the Runshaw Drama students for their excellent work on ‘A Monster Calls’.
