John Irving has received numerous awards for his best-selling novels, and millions of people have seen film adaptations of his books. In January, Stoneham Theatre brings one of Irving’s most celebrated novels to the stage: A Prayer for Owen Meany. Adapted by Simon Bent, it’s the epic story of one extraordinary boy — the young boy with the “wrecked voice” — set in Irving’s hometown of Exeter, New Hampshire. Weylin Symes directs.
