About this show

Based on the novel by John Irving, and adapted for the stage by Simon Bent, A Prayer for Owen Meany is a powerful, provocative dark comedy of friendship, faith and destiny. Owen Meany is an unusually small child with a striking voice who considers himself an instrument of God. When he accidentally kills his friend John Wheelwright's mother in 1950s New Hampshire, the two boys are forever linked as they search for truth in an evocative memory play seen through John Wheelwright's eyes. On Tuesday, September 19, Arden Theatre Company hosts Educators Night and College Night. All educators and college students, with valid ID, are invited to attend the 6:30 PM Tuesday preview performance for a discounted ticket price of $10.00.
