Synopsis

The Jungle Book by Neil Duffield

Mowgli, the lost boy and his loyal friends Baloo the bear and Bagheera the panther transport us to the jungle in a story that has touched the hearts of generations. Can Mowgli discover the secret of man's red flower? Can he fight off the terrifying tiger, Shere Khan? Will he be able to overcome the many dangers of the jungle and live there happily? Or will he leave his wild friends and join the humans in the village? Faithful to Kipling's original beloved story, this beautifully staged musical adaptation has proven a hit with theatres both in the UK and abroad.

Reviews

'...addresses the audience with a lovely, warm-hearted directness that is completely irresistible - a totally captivating piece of theatre...'



'When you see a gem of a show like the Byre's Jungle Book it makes you wonder why most theatres restrict children's shows to Christmas.'
