One of literature's most enduring classics is brought vividly to the stage in this exciting adventure of Mowgli, the Indian boy, raised by caring wolves, befriended by Bagheera, the Panther, and Baloo, the Bear, and threatened by Shere Kahn, the evil tiger. Interspersed with the Mowgli tale is the equally intriguing story of a young Rudyard Kipling at a British boarding school where he encounters his own "jungle," including peopleboth good and otherwisewho parallel many of the animal characters he created. Filled with excitement and humor, the play highlights the struggle of good versus evil, the worth of friendship, and the importance of loyalty and other values required for surviving the "law of the jungle." Suitable for all ages.
