When Lion Had Wings
Jungle is currently performing their new storytelling play When Lion Had Wings at 14 primary schools and children’s organisations during November and early December. Based on a Khoikhoi folktale the story is about a flying lion who is bullying all the animals. Flightless vultures become Lion’s slaves. Funny frogs lead the animals to discover their own talents and stand up to the bully. Insights into the behaviour of humans and wild animals are revealed… After the schools run Jungle will also perform the show for the public at the Masque (foyer) on 8, 12, 13, 14 and 15 December at 10am. Tickets are R50. For bookings phone: 021 788 1898 or Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
