Veritas Theatre Company and Kepow in association with Park Theatre present the World Premiere of

Monster

By Abigail Hood

Directed by Kevin Tomlinson

 

Glasgow. 2006. An abandoned playground. Troubled teenagers Kayleigh Grey and Zoe Douglas are flirting, playing dare and fantasizing about running away together to the Isle of Muck.

Despite being warned to keep away, teacher Miss Hastie is inexplicably drawn into the two girl's orbit of chaos and when Kayleigh’s mother, Hazel, attempts to keep her under her manipulative spell, the outcome is far worse than anyone could have ever anticipated.

With a cast of 6, this thrilling contemporary play explores the need for love and the powerful forces at play behind random acts of violence. How much control do we have over who we are and what we become? Does the past define our future? Can we ever forget who we once were, escape our past mistakes and start again? Or are we doomed to be haunted, hounded and hunted forever?

Veritas and Kepow are pleased to be returning to Park Theatre with their production of Monster, following the successes of their previous shows; Spiral (2018), Beneath the Blue Rinse (2019) and The Answer (2019).
