Adapted by Tim Kelly from Rudyard Kipling’s Rikki-Tikki-Tavi and Just So Stories:
From the world that brought us The Jungle Book, this play features colorful characters and rich storytelling. The wily mongoose Rikki-Tikki-Tavi spends most of his days investigating the jungle with his friends. But now a British family in old India is in jeopardy from marauding cobras in league with Shere Khan, the arrogant tiger. Can Rikki-Tikki-Tavi save them? Come find out on this magical, movement-filled adventure.
This STC production is directed by Oliva Griffith.
