  • Running Wild, by Michael Morpurgo, is a story of love, loss, loyalty and of living for the moment.

    For Will, going to Indonesia isn’t just another holiday with mum. It’s a new start, and the chance to ride an elephant called Oona. But then the tsunami hit.

    Charging deep into the jungle, Oona escapes the beach with her young rider desperately clinging on. Miles from civilisation, at first there’s wonder, discovery and tree-top adventures amongst the orang-utans. But, as thoughts turn to mum left behind on the beach, tigers prowl, hunger hits, and Will must now learn to survive the rainforest. Then come the hunters…

    In a new adaptation by Samuel Adamson, Michael Morpurgo's novel is one “that you know from the start is going to break your heart” (Times).

    With a cast of 40 directed by Artistic Director Timothy Sheader and original Chichester director Dale Rooks, and puppetry design and direction by Finn Caldwell and Toby Olié, both previous Associate Puppetry Directors on War Horse, Running Wild is the largest-scale production ever to be presented at the Open Air Theatre.

    At the Regent's Park Open Air Theatre from 13 May to 12 June 2016, book your Running Wild tickets today!

    *PLEASE NOTE: Opening with the funeral of Will's dad, RUNNING WILD is largely set in Indonesia at the time of the 2004 tsunami. The story is predominantly a jungle adventure which will be suitable for most children, though there are some moments of tension which may be upsetting for younger children. You may find it helpful to consult some reviews of the book here. In any event, children under the age of 4 will not be admitted to the theatre or theatre grounds.
