Quirk Theatre & Exeter Phoenix present

The Velveteen Rabbit

Alice knows what she’s going to get for Christmas this year (and EVERY year) because it’s always, always, always the same. Socks from Granny, hankies from Uncle Graham, fluffy pyjamas from the Jones cousins and bath smellies from Aunt Betty.

Of course, Alice isn’t complaining. Presents are great (obvs). But Alice is growing up and sometimes she feels that her family hasn’t noticed. And this year, to make matters worse, she’s been given a toy rabbit and she’s expected to love it!

Join Alice and the Velveteen Rabbit on a heart warming adventure as they explore what it means to love and be loved.

A magical portrayal of growing up, moving on and not letting go by Quirk theatre, full of heart, hilarity and a sprinkling of the miraculous.

‘Quirk Theatre know perfectly how to create that magical blend of unmissable fun, laughter and audience participation’
