The latest production to hit the stage at the White Bear Theatre is Fabricate theatre’s version of Jack Thorne’s Bunny, playing from the 7th to the 25th March.

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.

This one woman show, written by Jack Thorne (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child) explores one girl’s struggle to find her place in the world which lack communication and intimacy.

Bunny is directed by Lucy Curtis, who is the Artistic Director of Changing Face. Her directing credits include Dare to Dream (Arcola); It Is So Ordered (Pleasance/Park Theatre) and Where Will We Live? (Southwark Playhouse/Camden People’s Theatre).

Talking about the production, the director 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. They have stayed with us, and festered, and have now erupted across Britain, America and the rest of world.”

Bunny is produced by Catherine Lamb and Sophia Nicholson, designed by Lucy Weller, lighting by Samuel Miller and Lex Kosanke.
