Writer Joe Hampson, who also wrote Skins and The News Quiz, is making his West End debut with this production. The story follows fallout as Frank prepares to save his and Susan’s marriage by taking their pet rabbit to be murdered by a psychopath.
When asked about his motivations to write this dark story, Joe Hampson answered: ‘Since starting out working on shows about teenage relationships and then moving on to write about more mature, complex, and irregular ones, the same question always appears: What is it that is keeping these people together?’
Directing Rabbits is Sadie Spencer. She also directed Cautionary Kate (King’s Head Theatre), Albee Vector the Sound Collector (Tour/Bristol Old Vic), and Seeing Double (Pleasance/Camden People’s Theatre).
