Head of Drama at Hills Grammar, Stephen Clark, penned the play with a strong message about social inclusion.
The message was clear and the empathy commanded by the players, palpable. The Blue Rabbit, performed in the School’s Blue Box Theatre, sees a young blue rabbit from ‘over the hill’ bounce into the well-established red rabbits’ domain. The young rabbits have never seen a rabbit like this and have no idea how to react. Is it really a rabbit? Can we trust it? Maybe we are too different to get along. You can guess how the conflict is resolved… and yes, there is even a little rabbit love-story. However, it is what the very young and perceptive audiences took away that was most important.
