LITTLE RABBIT is the latest show from Small Mercies Productions.
Little Rabbit is a play about isolation and fragile identity, written for one versatile and physical actor.  Playing out all the influences on her life, adoptee Susan, a woman with learning difficulties, is trapped in a house as flood waters rise. In a personal detective story she pieces together the fragments of her life through the lens of her favourite fairy story Rapunzel. As she tries to make sense of her situation, she re-enacts key moments from her life through the remembered voices of her parents and her childhood companions. It is staged on a fragment of staircase with minimal set, lighting suggests the rising water as it threatens to engulf Susan’s home.

Director Bill Hopkinson brings his unique physical approach to text-based work and is reunited with actor and performer Deborah Pugh. She brings a lyrical physical approach to her performance.Placing story-telling at the centre of the aesthetic, Jane McNulty’s writing presents an empathetic character that invites the audience to question the life we allow to vulnerable people.

It is a dark contemporary fairy story for adults with elements of both realism and of the gothic. Playing time 60 minutes. Tickets  £9 / £8 Tickets available here
