Kiki's Delivery Service

Kiki’s Delivery Service

Kiki is back! Following a critically acclaimed, sold-out festive run at Southwark Playhouse, Kiki’s Delivery Service returns to The Large for a limited summer season.

Kiki is a 13 year old witch and, as tradition dictates, it is time for her to leave home and family to make a new life for herself. Equipped with her ability to fly and accompanied by Jiji, her faithful feline companion, she sets out to find a place where she can use her powers for the greater good and that one day she might call home.

A magical tale of growing up and finding acceptance, Kiki’s Delivery Service is a story for everyone aged 7 and up.

Kiki’s Delivery Service is adapted from the bestselling and award-winning book by Japanese author Eiko Kadono.
