Charlie Ashanti is eleven years old. He’s a perfectly normal boy, except for one thing: he can speak to cats. When Charlie’s 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 presents its first show for families and young people, inspired by Zizou Corder’s bestselling Lionboy trilogy and with a cast including Adetomiwa Edun from BBC’s Merlin.
