Complicite from London, England
From the novels by Zizou Corder adapted by Marcelo dos Santos
In a dystopian near future, it is very hot. Phones are powered by the sun, cars are banned and there are companies more powerful than even countries. The biggest by far is the Corporacy.
When the Corporacy abducts his parents, resourceful Charlie Ashanti sets out to save them. Luckily, he's got a secret weapon: he can talk to cats. Adapted by the Olivier Award-winning theatrical innovators Complicite, LIONBOY is a smart and adventurous staging of Zizou Corder's bestselling trilogy. With inimitable visual virtuosity, Complicite's ensemble takes you on a cross-continental rescue mission involving no less than a floating circus, a hot air balloon, a pride of talking lions and one clever chameleon.
"Complicite's performers are the crème de la crème, energetic, charismatic and plain talented enough to command the audience's attention."
