I am absolutely delighted that my adaptation of The Jungle Book will be re-staged in 2013 as West Yorkshire Playhouse's Christmas show in the Quarry Theatre, with Liam Steel directing.

This script was originally commissioned by Rupert Goold for Northampton Royal. I was both writer and director. The production transferred to Oxford Playhouse and was revived with a new cast as Warwick Arts Centre's Christmas show. Design by Diego Pitarch and music by Arun Ghosh. Original cast: Jude Akuwudike, Alex de Marcus, Arnie Hewitt, Anjali Jay, Georgina Roberts and Miltos Yerolemou. 

'without doubt an extraordinary and sensational success'     (The Stage).                                                    Full review here.                                                                                                                                        

'Where to begin heaping praise on this production?...The Jungle Book is back in a new and wonderful guise, given glorious life by Rosanna Lowe's sensitive, animal-empathetic production...Here is a version full of love, riddled through and through with beautifully observed detail...There's a lot of quiet wisdom in this show... Above all, this is a joyous, triumphant team effort from start to finish.'   (The Independent) .                        Full review here.
