Tues 28 Aug - Sat 1 Sep
When the young Mowgli appears in the jungle, and Baloo the bear, Bagheera the panther and Akela the wolf surround him to protect him from the attack of the tiger Shere Khan, none of them can possibly anticipate the series of adventures that lies ahead.
Endlessly pursued by the monkeys who want Mowgli to make them human, finding an uneasy alliance with the hypnotic snake Kaa and learning the devastating power of fire from the villages that surround the jungle, Mowgli will have to learn the law of the jungle to survive, before ultimately choosing his place in the world.
The perfect summer treat for all the family, we proudly present the UK premiere of this dynamic adaptation of The Jungle Book, bringing Rudyard Kipling’s classic tale to the stage with thrilling percussion, vibrant puppetry and Kipling’s unforgettable, larger-than-life characters.
