ABOUT THE SHOW

The story of a young boy’s fantastic adventure after being washed up on a Pacific island – adapted for the stage by acclaimed dramatist Stuart Paterson from the best-selling novel by Children’s Laureate Michael Morpurgo.

Michael embarks on a round-the-world sailing voyage with his parents, only for their dream to become a nightmare when Michael falls overboard. Washed up on an island in the Pacific populated with orang-utans, Michael soon makes a startling discovery: the island is already home to one extraordinary man, and this is Kensuke’s Kingdom.

"I think that this is one of the best books I have read. The story goes slowly and steadily, but without dragging. The characters are all powerful and realistic, and they make the story interesting. I loved how the author made Michael a childish, but brave and honest character. The ending was strong and it almost made me cry "

– The Guardian

"Like all the best children's writers, Morpurgo has a smuch to say to adults as to children, and they will enjoy Kensuke's Kingdom just as much.
