Introducing…Kipling’s Rikki-Tikki-Tavi: A Children’s Play.
“This is the story of the great war that Rikki-tikki-tavi fought single-handed, through the bathrooms of the big bungalow in Segowlee cantonment. Darzee, the muskrat, who never comes out into the middle of the floor, but always creeps round by the wall, gave him advice; but Rikki-tikki did the real fighting.”
“Rikki-Tikki-Tavi” is a favorite story in Rudyard Kipling’s classic, The Jungle Book. In this stage adaptation, any one can enjoy the beloved story of the mongoose Rikki-tikki and his great war with the wicked cobras Nag and Nagaina as a children’s play. Written in Kipling’s original language as much as possible, children are able to enjoy acting out the drama of the story without losing the authentic flavor of Kipling’s beloved tale.
With a cast comprised of a narrator, eleven main parts, and a possible chorus of up to 20 (but as few as one or two), the play is flexible for any situation.
