Charlie Ashanti is eleven years old. He’s a perfectly normal boy, except for one thing: he can speak to cats. When Charlie’s parents are kidnapped, he sets off on a rescue mission – with a little help from a floating circus and its pride of performing lions.

‘Complicite produces the most imaginative theatre to be found anywhere.’ Independent

‘Since 1983…Complicite has been helping us make sense of the world, making us laugh and weep and making us see things we would otherwise have missed...It is the reason I go to the theatre’ Telegraph

From the novels by Zizou Corder
Directed by Annabel Arden
Assistant Producer Poppy Keeling (shamefully not on the main flyers, but it's true)
Adapted by Marcelo dos Santos
With Annabel Arden, Louisa Young, Mike Kenny and the Company

Award-winning theatre company Complicite presents its first show for families and young people, inspired by Zizou Corder’s best-selling Lionboy trilogy and with a cast including Adetomiwa Edun from BBC’s Merlin.

An adventure that will inspire and entertain, don’t miss this new play at the Unicorn on its only London tour dates.
Or see it at the Oxford Playhouse first. I will.
