(adapted from the novel by John Irving)
"“Your memory is a monster; you forget — it doesn't. It simply files things away. It keeps things for you, or hides things from you — and summons them to your recall with will of its own. You think you have a memory; but it has you!”
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. The aftermath propels John into a lifelong journey of questions regarding his own spiritual beliefs. At the same time, Owen surfaces with the unwavering conviction that he is an instrument of God. After capturing the imagination of generations of readers, Owen Meany has become an extraordinary and unforgettable theatrical event.
