MONSTER HUNTERS

"I had to look in the mirror, every day, and tell myself that I was more important than the Abominable Snowman."

 

Sylvia Strike, the infamous monster hunter, has spent her whole life searching for Bigfoot, and has been all over the world. Now, on her 65th birthday, she may be about to meet him face to face – outside her cottage in the middle of Kent. 

Her son is an academic and says it’s all rubbish. Her daughter doesn’t know what to believe. But something is happening in the woods outside, and Sylvia is determined to find out what it is…

Crowley & Co. present a hilarious and touching new comic drama by David K. Barnes (Zut Alors Theatre's Games of Love and Chance) about family, faith and impossible things. The play was performed as part of the King's Head Theatre's Without Décor scheme as a minimalist production in May 2015.

Directed by Tom Crowley, this Without Décor production of Monster Hunters marked a significant stage in the development of a powerful, poignant and deeply funny piece of new writing. The show starred Ellie Dickens (BBC2's The Genius of Turner), Beth Eyre (The Wireless Theatre Company, Radio 4's Noise: A Human History), Daisy Badger (ITV1's Home Fires, Radio 4's The Archers) and Peter Wicks (Oriel Theatre's The Tulip Tree, KUDOS's A Hero of Our Time). Props were by Anna Driftmier, publicity design and illustration were by Mihaela Bodlovic. The producer was Caitlin Benedict.
