A tale of wisdom in our eternal quest for love, identity and belonging.

You may think you know JUNGLE BOOK, but Indigo Moon Theatre’s version is inspired by the poetry & spirit of Rudyard Kipling’s original books. Fearless and free, Mowgli the ‘man-cub,’ finds fun and friendship as he learns to live by the Law of the Jungle.

Follow Mowgli’s wild adventures in the dangerous world he inhabits, brought to life with inventive shadow theatre, powerful original music and colourful digital projections.

A contemporary tale: it offers us wisdom in our eternal quest for love, identity and belonging.

Find out more about this inspirational and accessible art form and its use of puppets and multiple light sources after the show.

“This is the kind of theatre I would take my children to see, as it clearly tells a story through engaging poetic words filled with important messages about life – the invaluable knowledge that is not taught at school and that children and adults mustn’t forget. I will definitely be on the lookout for their future performances” Sofia Moura, Theatre Fullstop

“….shadow-characters swing and scamper across several tiers of jungle, often overlayed against one another, blurring in and out of focus to suggest the environment’s tangled depths…….fabulously colourful and psychedelic ……. all underscored by atmospheric south Asian music and sound…” Brian Logan, The Guardian
