Edward Tulane is an expensive toy rabbit made of China. He is loved by a little girl named Abilene, but Edward doesn’t care. He is vain and self-centered.
Tossed overboard, stuck in a traveler’s knapsack, used as a scarecrow, renamed and reinvented, you will fall in love with our rabbit doll named Edward as he undertakes a life-changing 20-year journey. Along the way, he sheds his arrogance, and his heart grows bigger and softer as he discovers the importance of people, friendship, and love.
Through this miraculous journey, Edward learns what it is to love, what it is to lose that love, and how to find the courage to love again. With a simple set, live music, a small ensemble of actors playing multiple characters and a tender story, Kate DiCamillo’s bestseller comes to life in an unforgettable stage experience.
Adapted for the stage by Dwayne Hartford
Based on the novel by Kate DiCamillo
