Bunny at the Tristan Bates Theatre is a one-woman show that plays with the ideas of surprise & suspense, thrillingly performed by Catherine Lamb – well worth a watch.
Bunny at the Tristan Bates Theatre is a clever, ambitious, funny and scary piece of theatre, delivered with grit and integrity by a superb actor.
Catherine Lamb gives an energetic performance, making full use of the performance space. She is able to take the story of one particular young woman in a small British town and give it a universal relevance.
Lots & lots of shows have their first performances in London and across the country this month, including new productions of Pinter’s The Birthday Party, Wilde’s Lady Windermere’s Fan, and Shakespeare’s All’s Well That Ends Well.
Did you miss BUNNY this year? You’re in luck! Fabricate Theatre’s critically acclaimed revival of the one-woman play Olivier Award winner Jack Thorne (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child) returns for a strictly limited season at Tristan Bates Theatre in January. Add this to your New Year’s Resolutions list – see this show!
Recounted by the breathlessly energetic and recklessly teenage Katie, Bunny takes a snapshot of her life in the racially divided estates of Luton over the course of a hot summer’s afternoon. A messy encounter between her older boyfriend Abe and an Asian kid on a bike spirals into something more profoundly disturbing.
Katie is a fairly average eighteen-year-old living a life busy with A-levels, uni applications and her older boyfriend, Abe. She’s not sure what she wants to do with the rest of her life, but she’s enjoying the here and now of Luton in the springtime.
The production’s prologue of shuffling music is a glimpse into the format of this play. We rarely stay in one place long, whether it is Katie telling us about her parents’ erratic relationship or her own erratic relationship with older and sullen Abe.
The annual FIRST Festival of Solo Performances returns to London’s Tristan Bates for its fifth year. Steve Furst’s one-man comedy show Steve Furst: In Character headlines the festival, which includes 25 shows and 50 performances over three weeks from 11 to 29 April 2017.
Actress Catherine Lamb stars in and makes her producing debut with a revival of Jack Thorne’s one-woman play Bunny, which opens next week at London’s White Bear Theatre. She explains why she had to found a theatre company and make this production happen…
Bunny is the story of Katie, a young girl struggling to find where she ‘fits’ into the world. In her own words she is the ‘unfit fitter’.
Jack Thorne’s one-woman 2011 play Bunny will be revived at London’s White Bear Theatre from 7 to 25 March 2017, with a press night on 9 March.
