Monsters
On from 06 May 2009 till 30 May 2009
Arcola Theatre
by Niklas Radstrom
Genre(s): Drama

About: Monsters

"None of this should ever have happened. Somebody should have given us a different life."

Two ten year olds are brought in for questioning. A third boy has gone missing. The investigator is gentle. The boys begin to talk.

1993. A play about the killing of James Bulger. Stripped to the bone, faithful to the facts. Unflinching.

Monsters looks beyond the media gaze to distil our individual and collective responsibilities in a seemingly incomprehensible tragedy.

"I’ve tried to tell Jon not to play with Robert. When Jon and Robert are together stupid things always happen."

Niklas Radstrom is one of Sweden’s most accomplished writers, winning prestigious awards for his drama, fiction, film scripts and poetry.

Winner of the inaugural Anglo-Swedish Literary Foundation Award 2008.

"Outrageous and beautiful"
Tomas Forser, The Gothenburg Post, Sweden

"Turning our backs to the smallest injustice is going to be a little harder in the future"
Linda Isaksson, Nummer.se, Sweden

"A powerful and confrontational piece of drama, based on one of our era's most horrifying incidents"
Odsherred Teater, Denmark
