Dr. Dolittle, the vet with an extra-special skill, has captured the minds and hearts of families around the world since Hugh Lofting first created the timeless character while writing home to his children from the trenches during the first world war.
The Barking Dog Theatre Company will bring us along on one of his thrilling misadventures in this brand-new show (based on the first book of the series "The Story Of Dr Dolittle") for children aged between five and ten.
In this adventure, Dr Doolittle is called on to help cure an outbreak of disease among the monkeys in Africa. He heads off on a long and perilous journey with his trusty dog Jip, his parrot Polynesia, and his monkey Chee Chee.
And then- Oh no! He gets shipwrecked and captured! Will he ever get to help those monkeys? Come along to find out!
