From the acclaimed author of Warhorse, this multi-award winning tale of enduring friendship is brought to life in a brand new stage adaptation produced by New Perspectives and Curve Theatre, Leicester

The Butterfly Lion is the story of Bertie who rescues an orphaned lion cub whilst growing up in South Africa. However, when he’s sent back to England to go to boarding school, the young cub is sold to a circus. Both boy and cub miss the bond which has grown between them and Bertie vows he will see his friend again. Little does he know the adventurous, romantic, shocking turns his life will take before that day finally comes.
