Hare Brain

First Performance 2004

Does fast and furious or slow and steady win the race?

Hare Brain tackles the age old dilemma – does fast and furious or slow and steady win the race? Updated to a fantasy world of toy invention, replete with a gurgling think tank that sparks vacuum cleaners, mops and brushes into a life of their own, Hare Brain tells the tale of Harry and Toulouse who are in a slapstick race against time to find the perfect story that will fit the perfect toy. Who will it be that tells the final tale? Harry, the stressed out marketing guru or Toulouse, the considered, gentle storyteller?
