Set within a film shoot, layered with live projections, Melbourne theatre company Born in a Taxi thoughtfully and hilariously reimagine this 100 year old children’s story by Margery Williams.

One of those rare stories that dares to tease out complex themes of loss and love in a way that allows children to connect with them, The Velveteen Rabbit is about a toy rabbit who becomes real…but how did it happen? In the hands of Born in a Taxi, the story is infused with dynamic audience participation, music, and live projections that layer into the work multiple scales and give the perspective of the child.

Please bring your own favourite snuggly toy to the show! Be it a teddy bear, squishee or rabbit, your special guest is invited to sit next to you in the theatre.

Velveteen Rabbit was commissioned by Monash University Performing Arts Centres.
