From the inventive playwright of The Rose’s "Robin Hood" in 2012 and the groundbreaking director of "Jackie & Me" and "The Borrowers," comes a new adaptation of the classic Kipling tale. Mowgli is rambunctious and curious, scrappy and silly. Lost in the Indian jungle, he is adopted by Baloo the Bear, Bagheera the panther, and all the animal friends who call the mysterious wilderness home. This fast-paced retelling keeps you perched on the edge of your seat as young Mowgli comes face-to-face with mischievous monkeys, noisy vultures and his mortal enemy: the tiger, Shere Khan.
