Multi-award winning playwright Jack Thorne’s play Bunny will play at the White Bear Theatre as part of the theatre’s 2017 season it has been confirmed.

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.

Directed by Lucy Curtis and starring Catherine Lamb, Bunny takes audiences inside the mind of a young girl as she struggles to find her place in a world that lacks intimacy and connection.

Talking about the play Lucy Curtis said: “: Bunny is about the state of our nation now – we are faced with youth unemployment, problematic political campaigns, factory closures and racial tensions in our communities. We are seeing the re-emergence of 20th century mentalities that, it turns out, were never completely left behind.”

This production is being presented by Fabricate Theatre and is being produced by Catherine Lamb and Sophia Nicholson.

Other members of the creative team includes designs by Lucy Weller, lighting by Samuel Miller and sound by Lex Kosanke.

Bunny will play at the White Bear Theatre from the 7th March until the 25th March. For more information and to book tickets visit: http://whitebeartheatre.co.uk/play/bunny/
