Revolving Shed: LSE's Student Theatre Company

SUMMARY

‘HOW TO CATCH A RABBIT’ is a new play surrounding a group of urban Gypsies living in Southeast London. We join Stan, Nell, Cass and Sonya as Eric returns to the council-run site. Through their eyes we experience the suffocating encroachment of the state. With live music composed by Shou Jie Eng, you are pulled into the dark and desperate world of Nettlebeck. An exciting and brave confrontation between generations, between cultures, betweenn dogs and their prey. You are the gawja... can you catch a rabbit?

Inspired by one of the LSE's founders, George Bernard Shaw, The Revolving Shed, draws its name from the revolving hut at the end of the garden in which Shaw penned some of his most famous dramatic works. Entirely student produced and committed to original work, the company is dedicated to exploring the social sciences through theatre.

‘HOW TO CATCH A RABBIT’ is an insightful snapshot of life on the Gypsy site of Nettlebeck. Written and directed by the producer of the 5 Star production of ‘One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest,' nominated for Best Play at London Festival Fringe 2011, ‘RABBIT’ presents a people you only think you knew. From cockfights to root vegetables, sex work to a diabetic horse, ‘HOW TO CATCH A RABBIT’ will transport you into a world that exists just down the road, but is light-years away from your own daily experience. Prepare to laugh, prepare to be surprised, and mostly, be prepared to think about what you already think you know.

With an original script, an original score, and a team of talent composed of young people from all over the world, ‘HOW TO CATCH A RABBIT’ will be one of the most exciting and unexpected student productions at the Fringe this year.

Admission: £5(£3) – £7(£5)
