‘The Jungle Book’, one of literature’s most enduring classics, is brought vividly to the stage in this exciting adventure of Mowgli, the Indian boy raised by caring wolves, befriended by Baghera, the panther, and Baloo the bear, and hunted by Shere Khan the tiger.
Flory’s script also tackles the inner life of Mowgli as he learns that he is not a wolf, and tries to reconcile his relationships with mankind, and the Jungle. This production of ‘The Jungle Book’ relies strongly on physical theatre, from a young ensemble, and will incorporate puppetry, poetry, and animation, creating an eclectic style of theatre true to itself.
Audience members should expect something quite unique, but scrupulously faithful to Kipling’s work.
The Jungle Book plays at 7:30pm on October 20, 21, 25, 28, 30 and November 1, 3, and 4, with 2pm performances on Sundays, October 22 and 29.
