Show Details

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 ultimately have to choose 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.

 

The Jungle Book is presented by special arrangement with Samuel French Ltd.

 

What the press say

“a lush, colourful introduction to the ways of the jungle”  SEE Edmonton

“there’s something that just screams – and also howls, caws, roars, shrieks, hisses – theatre about the coming of age situation in which young Mowgli, the “man-cub” finds himself” Edmonton Journal

Autumn 2002 marked the Theatre's return to producing, when Clive Rowe starred in Paul Ryan and Peter Readman's new musical Sadly Solo Joe. The show was one of 12 new musicals showcased in Musical Futures 2002, and after its run here the production transferred to the International Festival of Musical Theatre in Cardiff. In summer 2003, to great acclaim, we revived Golden Boy, an American musical not seen in London since Sammy Davis Jnr played the starring role at the London Palladium in 1969, and in 2005 we presented the world premiere of Arnold Wesker's Longitude.

In 2007 James Haddrell became director of the theatre, reimagining the theatre as you see it today. The theatre now presents the annual Greenwich Children's Theatre Festival every April, co-produces the annual Greenwich World Cultural Festival with Greenwich Dance, and produces a free outdoor summer show (awarded the London 2012 Inspire Mark in 2008). The theatre's work with young and emerging artists has grown rapidly and the company now runs a hugely oversubscribed artist development programme, supporting young or new companies as they grow and evolve and presenting an annual Emerging Artists season every May.

The company's in-house producing has also increased dramatically. A partnership with new film company Stage on Screen has led to the production of four classic dramas since 2009 - Doctor Faustus, The School For Scandal, The Duchess of Malfi and Volpone - all of which are now selling internationally on DVD.

In 2010 the theatre made its producing debut at the New End Theatre in Hampstead with Pakita: Stimulating, Bitter and Necessary, co-produced with Little Soldier Productions. Since then we have toured work to The London Particular (New Cross), Stratford Circus, Chelsea Theatre and Jackson's Lane (Highgate), and toured co-productions around the country with Scamp Theatre and Finger In The Pie. We have forthcoming productions scheduled for Underbelly at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Teachers' Club at the Dublin International Gay Theatre Festival, and Courtyard Theatre as part of the Out In The Sticks Festival in Hereford.
