RUN RABBIT RETURNS, SHARPENED AND READY FOR BATTLE

The Bunny is back and in need of your help! After a successful opening season in 2018 at The Basement Theatre, Victoria Abbott (Pop Up Globe, Red Leap Theatre, Auckland Theatre Company) is bringing her solo masterpiece Run Rabbit to Auckland Fringe Festival 2019.

Refreshed and ready for round two, this Fringe Victoria Abbott has a carrot in her hand ready to ride into battle against... a bratty rabbit? The army of medieval menfolk at the moat? The mysterious placard holding carol singer? Metaphors, mockery and misery with a grin, this is a love letter to the late-night walk home, via a bombastic medieval ancestor, Black Agnes.

Spanning across a casual 681 years and ripping into whatever and whomever she has at hand, Victoria Abbott is tearing herself to pieces and putting it all back together in an hour. You're in safe hands, but bets are off for those at the gate.

Get ready.

Run Rabbit is a series of explosions and interruptions. It's all about being on the inside and digging your way out. It's a deep, mischievious, devious rage. Welcome to the fray...

REVIEWS:

"Everything is handled with the clarity of a master at the top of her game. Embedded in the DNA of the show is a bubbling violence and ferocity. One that Victoria doesn't shy away from. In the blink an eye, the show transforms... This is a blistering evening of fight or flight" - Nathan Joe, Theatre Scenes

"Until the last vital minutes, you're never sure where, exactly, all this is heading. And then Abbott brings it all together... and, when she does, drawing all the disparate threads of Run Rabbit together, it hits you like a brick falling from a wall." - Dionne Christian, The Herald

"Easily one of the best pieces of theatre I've ever seen." - Matt Baker

    Hello Boosted Patrons!

     

    We want to thank everyone who has donated so far, your generosity is so appreciated by all of us!

    Unfortunately, due to some unexpected costs, we are now in need of a bit more cash, and are looking at needing to raise $1,600 instead of the $1,100. Turns out carrots don't come cheap anymore...

    We thank you in advance for your support!

     

    Love,

    The Run Rabbit Team
