Watership Down | ALRA Shows

Directed by Chris Honer

Musical Direction by The Company

Watership Down by Richard Adams
Adapted by Rona Munro

Facing the destruction of their warren a colony of rabbits embark on a perilous adventure to find the promised new warren. Watership Down is the classic tale of a group of rabbits in search of a home.

About the play

A vivid premonition about their warrens' imminent destruction leads a group of rabbits on a perilous journey to find a new home. The actors are transformed into the brave rabbits and their physical interpretation of the classic tale promises to bounce along with energy and conviction. The rabbits are a metaphor for our time as they seek a safe place of refuge in a world fraught with danger.
