The Indian Boy

By Rona Munro

Paperback £8.99£7.19

There is limited availability of this title. Please enquire before placing your order.

A play about the discovery of a 'wild child', examining our mythic struggles with the wilderness inside ourselves.

A 'wild child' is found in the last clump of woodland left on a building development. The builder, Peter, wants him out of the way. The psychologist, Julius, wants to protect him. His wife, June, wants to understand him and all the time something even wilder seems intent on escaping from the forest.

Rona Munro's play The Indian Boy was written for the Royal Shakespeare Company and was inspired by the 'little changeling boy' who is the source of Oberon and Titania's quarrel in Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream.

It was first performed by the Royal Shakespeare Company at The Cube, Royal Shakespeare Theatre, Stratford-upon-Avon, in 2006.
