From the novels by Zizou Corder, adapted by Mike Kenny and directed by Annabel Arden.
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.
Award-winning theatre company Complicite presents its first show for families and young people, inspired by Zizou Corder's best-selling Lionboy trilogy. Adapted for stage by Mike Kenny (The Railway Children) and directed by Complicite founder Annabel Arden.
