The Velveteen Rabbit


disabled access

There was once a velveteen rabbit, and in the beginning he was really splendid. He was fat and bunchy, as a rabbit should be; and for at least two hours the Boy loved him.

The Velveteen Rabbit tells the tale of a shy toy rabbit who longs for nothing more than to be loved and become real. He spends his days waiting patiently on the nursery floor, watching the Boy play with the other toys and dreaming of being picked up and loved. And then, one day, he is rediscovered and all of his hopes begin to come true.

First published in 1922, Margery Williams' classic American tale loses nothing of its power in a contemporary adaptation for the Unicorn stage by the Unicorn's Artistic Director Purni Morell.
