About the Show Less...

A warren of rabbits forced to leave their burrow, flee into the darkness…but no sooner have they left do they consider turning back. Read More >

It is expected to be very faithful to the novel, except that the rabbits will be played as humans, which turns the story of the rabbits being forced out of their home into a tale of refugees and their adventures.

The story follows a warren of Berkshire rabbits fleeing the destruction of their home by a land developer. As they search for a safe haven, skirting danger at every turn, we become acquainted with the band and its compelling culture and mythos. Adams has crafted a touching, involving world in the dirt and scrub of the English countryside, complete with its own folk history and language (the book comes with a ‘lapine’ glossary, a guide to rabbitese). As much about freedom, ethics and human nature as it is about a bunch of bunnies looking for a warm hidey-hole and some mates.
