The Velveteen Rabbit

A Unicorn Production

TOURING TO THE NEW VICTORY THEATER, NEW YORK IN JANUARY 2016.

  • By Margery Williams
  • Directed by Purni Morell

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 is a heart-warming story about a very shy toy rabbit who longs for nothing more than to 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 his hopes start to come true…
