For 30 years Complicite has toured the world with ground-breaking and original productions, enthralling audiences and influencing the next generation of theatre makers. Adapted from Zizou Corder’s best-selling trilogy, Lionboy is its first show created especially for families and young people.
Lionboy tells the story of eleven-year old Charlie Ashanti, a perfectly normal boy, except for one thing: he can communicate with cats - from household pets to roaring lions. When his scientist parents are kidnapped by agents of an evil multi-national pharmaceutical corporation, Charlie sets off on a brave rescue mission that takes him from London to Africa, with a little help from a floating circus and its pride of performing lions!
Renowned for devising theatrical makeovers of great literary works for adults, Complicite brings its renowned imagination, physicality and storytelling skills to this heartwarming adventure for young people everywhere.
No wonder Steven Spielberg has snapped up the movie rights!
