The premiere of a new play for children about a boy who swaps places with the monster under his bed. Read More >

The Monster Under The Bed is a new play which makes its premiere at Polka theatre following a rehearsed reading at New Visions New Voices, a prestigious US festival of new plays for children.

Kevin Dyer’s The Monster Under The Bed tells the story of Ben. He’s got a big problem (or two) – his best friend Vince has stolen his precious binoculars, his Dad is far, far away.. oh and there’s a monster under his bed. So one morning, the monster goes to school instead, promising Ben he’ll get those binoculars back for him. But when Ben swaps places with the underbed monster, his life and his school are turned inside out, upside down. 

The Monster Under The Bed is directed by Polka theatre’s Artistic Director, Jonathan Lloyd. 

Suitable for children aged 6+
