WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Youth on Target Productions, an emerging theatre company, is opening it's youth theatre series with Mast's 1991 Distinguished Play Award winner, JungalBook. Adapted from Rudyard Kipling's landmark novel, The Jungle Book, this innovative retelling maintains the family-friendly quality of the original, while making the story accessible to a contemporary and urban audience. The Indian jungle of the classic tale is replaced with an urban schoolyard and the animals take on human roles and characteristics. Mowgli, the "mancub," moves through the play being raised by wolves, protected by Bagheera, the lonely panther, and schooled in the "Jungal Law." Through his ongoing conflict with Sherakhan, the wicked tiger, and his inevitable shift into adulthood, he is forced to mature and come to question his place in the world.
