Show Information

"There's a monster in the garden and it's going to eat me," said Bernard.

Bernard's got a problem. He's found a monster in the back garden and his mum and dad are just too busy to notice. So Bernard tries to befriend the monster... and that doesn't go quite to plan.

Loved by children, adults and monsters for over thirty years, David McKee's iconic picture-book will be vividly brought to life on the Sherman Theatre stage.

Ages 2+
