ACTORS will share the stage with spectacular life-size puppets when a theatre company brings its award-winning production to a Leeds theatre next month.

Described by critics as “inspiring” and “imaginative”, the adaptation of Michael Morpurgo’s Running Wild tells an emotional story of love, loss, loyalty and living for the moment.

It follows the adventures of schoolgirl Lilly, who must learn to survive in the Indonesian rainforest after escaping a tsunami on the back of an elephant.
