BY SIMON BENT

(adapted from the novel by John Irving)

"I believe we are all here for a purpose.” 

WITTY. INTELLECTUAL. TIMELY.

Adapted from the bestselling novel, A Prayer for Owen Meany is a sweeping saga of friendship, destiny and the miracle of faith. Set against the backdrop of societal upheaval in America during the 1960s, this engaging and heartwarming story recounts the unbreakable bond between John and Owen. Bound together forever by a tragic childhood accident, John soon begins to question his own faith, while Owen develops the unwavering conviction that he is an instrument of God. Capturing the imaginations of generations of readers, A Prayer for Owen Meany becomes in this stage adaptation an extraordinary and unforgettable theatrical event.
