Edward Tulane is a vain porcelain rabbit, more concerned with his wardrobe than the affection of Abilene, the little girl who loves him. Lost overboard on a trip abroad, Edward begins a 20-year journey to learn what it means to love, the pain of losing that love, and the courage it takes to love again. This beautiful theatrical adaptation of Kate DiCamillo’s award-winning tale is ensemble storytelling at its best. Do not mistake this for a children’s show; this captivating story is for adults as well as families, and tackles important themes of love and loss.
