The revival of Complicite's critically acclaimed Lionboy is coming to the Tricycle Theatre this winter from December 17 2014 to January 10 2015. Charlie Ashanti lives in a future where phones are powered by the sun, cars are banned and companies are more powerful than countries. Charlie is a perfectly normal boy, except for one thing: he can speak to cats. So when his 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 (The Master and Margarita; Shun-kin; A Disappearing Number) fuses storytelling, circus and live percussion in this gripping adventure inspired by Zizou Corder's bestselling novels. Suitable for everyone aged 8 and up Family and children's tickets available.
