Oxfam Bookstore host exclusive preview show before Edinburgh Fringe

30 July 2013

Yorkshire born theatre show Rabbitskin will play at Harrogate’s Oxfam Bookstore as part of a drive to raise funds for the Syrian Refugee Crisis Appeal.

The show is hot off the heels of a successful UK tour and lands at the Oxfam store on Saturday 10 August at 7.00pm ahead of its transfer to the Edinburgh Fringe festival.

Luke-Adamson-as-Joe-photo-by-Alex-BiocuWritten by Leeds based writer Dominic Grace, Rabbitskin was originally developed by the West Yorkshire Playhouse and performed as part of WYP/Theatre in the Mill new writing season in 2012.

The critically acclaimed, hard-hitting monologue, takes contemporary issues such as mental health, violence, dysfunctional families and makes them real and personal through the character of Joe, an intelligent, articulate, troubled teenage boy. Stripped right back to the performer in a simple bare space, the piece draws you into the character of Joe and his stories. Joe’s charm and confidence mask a deeper vulnerability and eventually reveals the reasons Joe finds his own story so difficult to tell.

The show will preview only once in Harrogate before it transfers to be part of the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2013 at theSpace on the mile from 19 – 24 August.

Tickets are £6 and all proceeds will go to the Syrian Refugee Crisis Appeal and can be booked through Oxfam on 01423 506 262, tickets are also available on the door.

Cast: Luke Adamson, Director: Chris Hill, Producer: Milan Govedarica.
