On the surface it's a tale about one woman's medieval ancestor... follow the rabbit deeper into the heart of the fray.

Spanning across a casual 681 years and ripping into whatever and whomever she has at hand, Victoria Abbott is tearing herself to pieces and putting it all back together in an hour. You're in safe hands, but bets are off for those at the gate. 

Join Victoria Abbott in this special unplugged version of her award-winning solo in 'a blistering evening of fight or flight.’

 "Easily one of the best pieces of theatre I've ever seen." - Matt Baker

"Everything is handled with the clarity of a master at the top of her game. Embedded in the DNA of the show is a bubbling violence and ferocity. One that Victoria doesn’t shy away from. In the blink an eye, the show transforms... This is a blistering evening of fight or flight" - Nathan Joe, Theatre Scenes  

"Until the last vital minutes, you're never sure where, exactly, all this is heading. And then Abbott brings it all together... and, when she does, drawing all the disparate threads of Run Rabbit together, it hits you like a brick falling from a wall." - Dionne Christian, The Herald
