The Jungle Book swings in to the Unity Theatre
Rudyard Kipling’s classic tale is given the Unity and Action Transport Theatre’s trademark twist this Christmas.
The Jungle Book is the latest in a series of magical seasonal shows from the successful partnership, and under the direction of ATT’s Nina Hajiyianni.
It’s being billed as a “bold and highly theatrical re-telling” of Kipling’s story, with Kevin Dyer’s script looking at the themes of family, belonging, and our affect on the world around us, and comes complete with a musical score composed especially for the production by Angus McLeod.
As usual, a small ensemble will bring the tale to life. This year the international cast includes Joe Shipman, who appeared in Lizzie Nunnery’s Narvik, singer/musician/actor Fionnuala Dorrity, American performer Asif Majid, and Spaniard Sam Perez Duran.
The Jungle Book is at the Unity Theatre from December 1 to January 6. Tickets from the website HERE
