Synopsis


We all have our comfort blankets and coping mechanisms.


And if yours happens to be wearing a full-sized rabbit onesie (with ears), what's the problem?


You're not bothering anyone.


At least, not until you're photographed at the back of a child's funeral.


Dressed as a rabbit.


And the photo goes viral.


Rose Heiney's painfully funny play, now rewritten for the stage, was originally broadcast on BBC Radio 4.


Hilarious, outrageous and poignant, Original Death Rabbit shines a light on one woman's struggle with the dark side of the internet.
