Assistant Director Kirsty writes from the theatrical front line of the BUNNY tour!
We are thrilled to announce that nabokov’s 2011 tour of Jack Thorne’s Fringe First Award Winning BUNNY has officially begun! First stop was Plymouth, where last night The Drum played host to our Katie for the first of 5 performances. With new tunes, a hot new look, and as much break neck chat as ever, the incredible Rosie Wyatt kicked off the tour with the first of many knock out performances to an enthralled Plymouth audience.
We would like to say a massive thank you to our friends at the Drum, for making us feel so welcome and for helping us brush off the dust from our trusty projector, and iron out the creases in our big, beautiful screen. In no time at all the knots were tied, the screen was up, and the superb illustrations of Jenny Turner and video design of Ian William Galloway were looking as stonkingly good as ever - it's as if we’d never been away!
Talking of new friends, we would like to welcome Sara Shardlow (our fab new stage manager) to the BUNNY team, and say a special thank you to Nat Walker for coming all the way to Plymouth to show her the ropes. Great to have you on board Sara!
But it hasn’t been all work and no play - director Joe Murphy very generously took team BUNNY for a slap-up seaside meal at ‘The Waterfront’, and there are rumblings of Rosie and Sara testing out their palates on a Gin tour around Plymouth Distillery, thanks to our pal David Prescott. Have fun girlies, we look forward to hearing all about it and expect you to be gin connoisseurs by the end!
So if you are in Plymouth, or have friends that are, get them down to the Drum where Katie will be rocking out till Saturday. Here’s where else our ‘Bunny’ will be leaping to - next stop Manchester Royal Exchange. Blimey, it’s good to be back…
