Gentle and enchanting theatre for the young ones this half-term.

There’s a rabbit on the loose. He’s no ordinary rabbit, interested only in sleep and food. Instead he can climb stairs, balance on a tightrope and even take to the skies.

Fall under the spell of a little creature conjured out of tissue paper by a duo of gentle clowns. Let them guide you through a music-filled fantasyland where even the simplest things can become grandiose.

Developing shows for small children and their families since 2004, florschütz & döhnert’s blend of physical theatre, puppetry and humour is sure to entertain.

'florschütz & döhnert have much to teach about the imaginative possibilities of theatre' Sunday Herald (Scotland)

'A properly enchanting production...everyone practically sighs in unison, soothed and happy, and a little bit in love with a handkerchief dressed as a rabbit' Guardian
