(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 heartwarming and often amusing story recounts the unbreakable bond between Owen and John, who remain forever linked by a tragic childhood accident. In the wake of these events, John is propelled into a lifelong quest regarding his own spiritual beliefs, while Owen surfaces with 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.
