The Jungle Story by Lynn Brittney

£18.00 incl. zero VAT

The approximate running time of this play is 20 minutes.

NOT the cuddly Disney version of The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling but an adaptation of Kipling’s own play “The Jungle Story”. The Playstage version is a serious but not savage retelling of the boy Mowgli’s life in the jungle with the animals and his return to the world of men.


As with all our plays, there are full production notes that give advice on scenery, prop and costume-making.

Some of Kipling’s original song lyrics are included but no-one has ever found any music. We have commissioned music for this play but it will not be ready until later in the year. If you would like to create your own music, please feel free. Otherwise the song lyrics can be chanted by a chorus, like a poem

17 main speaking parts, chorus of animals required.
