About the Show Less...

Hugh Hughes brings his uplifting exploration of the unknowable to the Barbican Pit. Read More >

When Hugh finds his neighbour’s rabbit lying dead in his garden, the only sensible thing to do is to put it in a box. But it doesn’t fit. As he puzzles over what to do with the body he starts to wonder how much of life disappears when we die…

Combining Hugh’s uniquely charming theatricality and his best friend Aled’s music, Story of a Rabbit lifts the lid on life’s final mystery.

A comic and curiously uplifting new show celebrating the complexities of death.
