Hug The Bunny (Pits N Clits Theatre Company)

By | Published on Friday 17 August 2018

We all have that little voice that nags incessantly in the depths of our mind. And often there’s a whirlwind of voices, all clashing in turbulent waves of rage. And so we meet Rage, Nymphomania, Numbness and Ecstasy – the physical manifestations of the emotions inhabiting Nina’s subconscious. We soon learn of Nina’s predicament; pregnant, and unsure of whether to keep the baby, or to toss societal expectations aside and follow her darker instincts. Although ambiguous in places, it’s an imaginative, intelligent exploration of female “hysteria”, which for so long has been examined through a male lens. And this female-led theatre company certainly reclaims it – the combination of lyrical writing, slick choreography and stunning performances makes for an exciting theatrical debut.

Greenside @ Infirmary Street, until 18 Aug.
