Complicite presents a revival of its sell-out production
Charlie Ashanti lives in a future where phones are powered by the sun, cars are banned and companies are more powerful than countries. Charlie is a perfectly normal boy, except for one thing: he can speak to cats.
So when his 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 comes to the Tricycle with a revival of its first ever show for families and young people. Inspired by Zizou Corder’s bestselling novels, Lionboy fuses storytelling, circus and live percussion in an adventure for everyone aged 8 and up.
Cast includes Femi Elufowoju, jr., Victoria Gould, Martins Imhangbe, Lisa Kerr, Angel Lopez-Silva, Eric Mallett, Clive Mendus and Dan Milne.
