Rotherhithe | Theatre | Brunel Museum


Set in the ancient and mysterious Brunel Tunnels, Mowgli lulls you into a world of wonder. A young forgotten boy comes of age without identity, and seeks his rightful place whilst unknowingly setting a series of events into action that will change him, and the law of the jungle forever.

A tale of belonging, unexpected kinships, and rivalries passed from age to age. The characters excite, thrill and alarm, with folk-song, movement and live music. Mowgli is a piece that all ages can delight in.  Adapted from Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book by Joe Newton, directed by Abiku’s founder/creative director in partnership with Joe Newton.  Abiku Theatre Company takes you into a whirlwind of a jungle as you’ve never seen it before.

Grade II* listed structure and the world’s first caisson. The chamber is half the size of Shakespeare’s Globe, and is open again for the first time in a hundred and fifty years. This is where work on the tunnel began, and where Isambard Kingdom Brunel nearly drowned. When it opened in 1843 it was the world’s most popular visitor attraction, with a million visitors in the first three months. There are guided tours every lunchtime, and regular music and theatre events, but entry is by half size doorway and temporary staircase. Work has begun to convert the chamber into gallery and performance space and the centrepiece of the Museum.

You come by boat to the museum at 10.45 on Tuesdays, Wednesdays,Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays or by walking tours on Sundays, Mondays and Wednesdays. See guided walking tour from Bermondsey or Embankment tube stations.
