A winner. The puppetry is exquisite, the magic really hits you

The Daily Telegraph on Running Wild

By Michael Morpurgo
In an adaptation by Samuel Adamson
Originally produced by Chichester Festival Theatre and Regent's Park Theatre.

For Lilly, going to Indonesia isn’t just another holiday with mum. It’s a new start, and the chance to ride an elephant called Oona. But then the tsunami hit – and Oona charges into the jungle, with her young rider desperately clinging on.

Directed by Timothy Sheader and Dale Rooks with puppetry design and direction by Finn Caldwell and Toby Olié, both previous Associate Puppetry Directors on War Horse, this epic and spectacular production tells an emotional and moving story of love, loss, loyalty and of living for the moment.

Age guidance 6+

Running time: About 1 hour and 50 minutes (including a 15 minute interval)
