The story of a young boy's fantastic adventure after being washed up on a Pacific island–adapted for the stage by acclaimed dramatist Stuart Paterson from the best-selling novel by Children's Laureate Michael Morpurgo.

Michael embarks on a round-the-world sailing voyage with his parents, only for their dream to become a nightmare when Michael falls overboard. Washed up on an island in the Pacific populated with orangutans, Michael soon makes a startling discovery: the island is already home to one extraordinary man, and this is Kensuke's Kingdom...

'One to treasure... In this adaptation by Stuart Paterson, the story is beautifully told... I've never heard such cheering as there was at the start of the second act.'   Birmingham Post
