Update: As you would expect, the economic impact of lockdown has informed our decisions on what we can stage, particularly in the coming months. With this in mind, it is with a heavy heart that we have cancelled our season of Original Death Rabbit. You can read more about our updates here.
“I was a thing, you see. I was briefly – very briefly – a meme. A craze. One of the first.”
Catapulted into fame after being snapped wearing a pink bunny onesie at the back of a funeral, @OriginalDeathRabbit immediately becomes a viral sensation. But what happens once the hype dies down?
Exploring the dark side of social media, Original Death Rabbit is a painfully funny play about our search for purpose, the struggle for connection and how to unplug in the digital age.
WHY YOU'LL LOVE THIS PLAY
“Original Death Rabbit is a one-woman show that savages the internet in the age of Instagram. Sharp and smart, this play explores what happens when our online lives intrude into our real ones. And there's a bunny suit.”
