WILD- stories and craft for families

Bernadette Russell of White Rabbit has written some new stories about animals for family audiences especially for Farmopolis- come and find out all about the creatures that live with us in London and make something to wear to the Animal Ball. You will hear about how squirrels can time travel and why rats live mostly underground, plus you’ll hear a song from the pigeon choir and learn to dance the Fox Trot.
White Rabbit have created work for National Theatre, LIFT Festival, Birmingham Rep and the Southbank Centre amongst others. Bernadette’s books “Do Nice Be Kind Spread Happy” and “Be The Change” are published by Quarto

Are You Sitting Comfortably? MONSTERS

Award winning White Rabbit  are seeking short story writers interested in having their work showcased at their next event “Monsters.”

They say we always get the monsters we deserve, that they are simply a dark reflection of ourselves, our fears and our desires. What makes a monster?
Are they amoral,inhuman beasts, eyes glittering with madness? Or beautiful and seductive beings, tempting us to sin? Or, worse of all, misunderstood creatures, unfairly hunted, lonely, unloved? We are hosting an evening of short stories read aloud, chosen and read by the team at White Rabbit. The evening will include B-movie visuals, monster mash music from the 1920s to now, ghastly games, free food served by a lycanthropist waiter, and blood drenched cocktails.

White Rabbit presents “How To Be A Hero” on tour

White Rabbit‘s latest storytelling show “How To Be A Hero” goes on a mini tour this September!

Let's Save The World!

Let’s Save The World!

“How To Be A Hero” tells the story of desperado vigilantes Gamma Guild.
The fearless foursome, together with their canine sidekick Dangerwoof, gather outside Greggs on the High Street to take on the city’s dark side. And so their battles begin: with three- legged cats, drunk and disorderly party goers, underage smokers, and the Women’s Institute; as they attempt to cope with growing YouTube notoriety in their quest to “Save The World”.
The show also includes stories of unsung local heroes from around the U.K, gathered and recorded from public workshops and interviews.
