The Velveteen Rabbit At The Unicorn

 

I went to a preview of The Velveteen Rabbit, part of The Unicorn Theatre’s Christmas season for children. I haven’t shed a tear over a rabbit story since Watership Down, and while this is no way in the weird and sinister league of that story, it’s still a beautifully told bittersweet tale that made me tear up a little. They have really Christmassed this adorable tale of a boy and his toy bunny right up, the snow-fall was magical. As well as live music throughout, I think children will love the physical theatre, the imagined ‘adventures’ the pair go on (the bed makes a spectacular pirate ship), and the emphasis on toys, playing and magic. I’d really recommend snapping up some tickets ¬†as soon as possible, it’s on until the end of December, and they are going fast. The Velveteen Rabbit is recommended for children age 5+ and is an hour and a half, including the interval.
