Adapted and directed by Amy and Tony Trigwell-Jones and devised by the company, this year’s production marks a return to these much-loved fables, which have given us How the Rhinoceros got his skin, How the Camel Got His Hump, The Elephant’s Child and many others.
A group of children have taken shelter from an un-named catastrophe and have taken Kipling’s much-loved stories as a source of inspiration for their new social system. This brand new show features all of NYT’s trademark comic timing, original live music and touches of simple magic.
Their first adaptation of Just So premiered at the Fringe in 2007, providing them with their first in a run of Five Star productions. With that sort of pedigree, it is common for companies to return to such shows, however this bold ensemble are creating something entirely new for children aged over 6 years and their families.
