Synopsis

Ben has a BIG problem. His Mum is acting grumpy, his best friend Vince has stolen his precious binoculars and his Dad is far, far away…oh, and there’s a monster under the bed. But when Ben Swaps places with the under-bed monster, Ben’s life – and his school – is turned inside out, and upside down. A funny and thrilling play for children about friendship and facing up to your fears.

“Drawing with delicacy and wit upon the childhood fantasy of the monster under the bed, writer Kevin Dyer proves why that endangered species, the original play for children, is worth saving. This is a terrifically entertaining story about fathers and sons and the monster inside all of us.” Guardian, UK
