Best Bits

“There’s a monster in the garden and it’s going to eat me,” said Bernard. “Not now, Bernard,” said his mother.

David McKee’s iconic picture book, loved by children and adults for over thirty years, is vividly brought to life in a brand new production at the Unicorn Theatre. An astonishingly clever, sometimes melancholic and outrageously funny play for children over 3, and a must-see for parents.

  • 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.
  • Join Bernard (and a monster) on an adventure that is equal parts funny and thought-provoking. 
  • An imaginative retelling of this beloved picturebook 
  • A monstrous comedy with dates this Half Term 
  • Don’t risk the boredom monster – bring the whole family along.
