Running WildMichael Morpurgo's Running Wild, originally produced by Chichester Festival Theatre and Regent's Park Theatre - it opened the Open Air Theatre season in 2016 - comes to Hackney Empire in March 2017. A story of love, loss, loyalty and of living for the moment, Running Wild follows Will and his mother as they embark on a journey to Indonesia for a new start, and the chance for Will to ride an elephant. But, when the tsunami suddenly hits, Oona the elephant charges into the rainforest with Will still clinging on. Told with spectacular life-size puppets, this show for children "mashes up The Jungle Book with a David Attenborough-esque plea for the preservation of endangered ecosystems" (Telegraph).

 

About Hackney Empire

Renowned East London entertainment venue designed by celebrated architect Frank Matcham. Stan Laurel and Charlie Chaplin both trod the boards here in the Hackney Empire's music hall heyday but the unique domed building was reduced to being used as a bingo hall for much of the 60s and 70s.
