The Concrete Jungle Book
By Dominic Garfield
with musical direction from Kwame ‘KZ The Producer’ Kwei-Armah Jr.
A Hip Hop Musical and Survival Guide
An explosive and energetic hip hop musical which catapults Rudyard Kipling’s classic story into inner-city Britain with live rap music, grime, reggae, spoken word and big personality.
As the jungle’s trees become tower blocks, Mo(wgli) navigates her way through relationships, unstable housing conditions and hostile creatures, trying to find the parental figures she has always longed for.
Returning for the first time since its critically acclaimed premier in 2017 and updated for a brand new cast of young multi-talented performers. This is The Jungle Book like you’ve never imagined.
Suitable for ages 11+
Supported by Shoreditch Town Hall & Arts Council England.
Originally created in collaboration with young people people at CentrePoint foyers across London and commissioned by Artsdepot and Zoo Venues, Edinburgh Fringe 2017.
