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 orang-utans, Michael soon makes a startling discovery: the island is already home to one extraordinary man, and this is Kensuke's Kingdom...

Stuart Paterson's stage adaptation of Michael Morpurgo's Kensuke's Kingdom was first staged by Birmingham Stage Company in 2005.

Extra Content: Michael Morpurgo introduces his book Kensuke's Kingdom in a video published by Harper Collins in March 2019.

Pronunciation Note: Kensuke is a Japanese character, and his name follows the Japanese pronunciation, which can be phonetically represented as 'kenskay'.
