A fiercely funny play about what it’s like to be a young woman living, working, drinking, loving and having sex in the 21st century.

It’s Bella’s 29th birthday. Friends and former lovers meet for a drink to celebrate. But as the Bloody Marys flow, the bar soon becomes a battlefield.

Nina Raine’s Rabbit was first performed at the Old Red Lion Theatre, London, in 2006. It subsequently transferred to the Trafalgar Studios in the West End, before playing at the Brits Off Broadway festival in New York in 2007.

The play won Nina Raine both the Evening Standard and Critics’ Circle Awards for Most Promising Playwright in 2006.

Sunday Express

‘Electric. This sharp, witty play about sex, success and self-knowledge is a must-see’

‘A writing debut of exhilarating punch and real comic perspicacity’
