New images from the upcoming production Jack Thorne’s Bunny have been released as the play begins its run at the White Bear Theatre.
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.
Written by Jack Thorne (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child), Bunny is an examination of one young girl struggling to find her place in the modern world which lacks communication and intimacy.
This one woman show is directed by Lucy Curtis who 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.”
The show is produced by Sophia Nicholson and Catherine Lamb (who also performs), together Curtis, Nicholson and Lamb are a trio who are attempting to create an unflinching, honest and intimate production of what it means to be growing up in today’s society.
The production also features designs by Lucy Weller, lighting by Samuel Miller and sound by Lex Kosanke.
Bunny continues to play at the White Bear Theatre until the 25th March. For more information and to book tickets visit: http://whitebeartheatre.co.uk/play/bunny/
