Four of Rudyard Kipling‘s classic children’s stories are brought to life in a song-filled journey from the Heart of the Sea to the banks of the grey-green Limpopo River.

Have you ever wondered how it is that the moon pulls the tides? (instead of a crab who was taller than the smoke of three volcanoes), or the reason why the elephant’s nose is so long?

Using umbrellas, pots, pans, socks, cushions, tennis balls and lampshades to create fantastical creatures and worlds, Red Table Theatre Company re-build these much-loved classic tales through discovered play.

Suitable for ages 4+
