A summer of love. A fight. A car chase. A siege. When Katie’s boyfriend is attacked on the streets of Luton, she is propelled outside of her borders on to the frontier of council estates and concrete jungles. Amidst the sweltering heat, the baying for blood and longing for love, Katie is forced to decide her future.

A vital tale for our times by multi-award winning playwright Jack ThorneBUNNY is an interrogation into the mind of one young girl struggling to find her place within a modern world lacking intimacy and connection. Join her in overcoming barriers as she rides through one extraordinary evening.

This major London revival is performed by Catherine Lamb and directed by Lucy Curtis, with movement by Angela Gasparetto, design by Lucy Weller, with sound by Lex Kosanke.

BUNNY is the inaugural production from Fabricate Theatre, which is dedicated to creating innovative and relevant pieces that speak to young people and showcase issues they face. The revival was first staged at London’s White Bear Theatre in March before featuring in the annual FIRST Festival of solo pieces in April at Tristan Bates Theatre, where it was invited to return next month.

BUNNY runs at the Tristan Bates Theatre, 1A Tower Street, London WC2H 9NP from 15 to 27 January 2017, with performances (70 minutes) Mondays to Saturdays at 7.45pm. Tickets are priced £15 (concessions £12).

Shanine Salmon: “Lamb’s performance… stuns as she plays not only the emotionally insecure Katie but also all the other characters in her life.”

Laura Kressly: “Thorne’s created an expressive young woman with little filter, but in moments of vulnerability, her lack of life experience is painfully obvious. Her naiveté is charming… Catherine Lamb endows her with a bright-eyed energy that’s fun and engaging to watch.”

Ian Foster: “Thorne writes skilfully of the awkwardness of late teenage years, the frustration of not quite being an adult along with the certainty of no longer being a child and at her best, Catherine Lamb’s narrator captures these bustling contradictions.”

Helen McWilliams: “What was your initial impression of the script? “My initial impression was that it is a bold play with a corrosive humour. It is a brave piece of work which perfectly captures the youth in Britain today.”
