Published Reviews

"Monica Flory's script is both scrupulously faithful to Rudyard Kipling and completely original in its approach. While Kipling's story is basically a grand adventure, this version takes its subtext -- a boy's quest for identity -- and makes it the heart of the piece. It includes all the book's action and even some of its dialogue, but increases the emotional resonance."

Laurel Graeber, The New York Times
