The Concrete Jungle Book

HighRise Theatre in association with artsdepot

The Concrete Jungle Book is a brand-new piece of hiphop theatre that catapults Rudyard Kipling’s classic story and characters into the streets of inner-city Britain. As the jungle’s trees become tower blocks, Mo(wgli) navigates his way through relationships, unstable housing conditions and hostile creatures, trying to find the father figure he has always longed for. With live rap music, spoken word and high energy physicality, HighRise Theatre present The Jungle Book like you’ve never imagined.
