About the Author:

Kevin Dyer has over 30 commissioned plays behind him - for radio, for young people's audiences, arts centres, rural tours, as well as a large-scale community play. He is a published poet and has been a magazine and newspaper journalist, a reviewer and a leader of many creative writing sessions.

Review:

"This energetic comedy for six to 11-year-olds is on at the Polka Theatre in South-West London until July 25. The script, unillustrated yet set in eye-friendly size text for easy following, will provide lots of raucous chuckles after the show. The play is about a boy called Ben, whose dad, a soldier, gives him a pair of binoculars before going off to war. When Ben's best friend Vince takes them, Ben swaps places with a monster to get them back and his day turns into a disaster. Drawing on The Borrowers and Roald Dahl's BFG, this is an imaginative new work from a diverse and experienced writer. Dyer's The Bomb, about the 1984 IRA Brighton explosion, won an Arts Council award." Whatsonstage.com "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." Lyn Gardner, The Guardian
