Table Read 03
A Rabbit. A Pig. And A Whore. In A Tiny Red Box.
by Héloïse Thual
What is love? What is desire?
If they ever knew, Miss Rabbit and Mister Pig have forgotten. In search of answers, they visit Whore who they consider the expert best able to provide them with well-informed definitions. As Rabbit, Pig and Whore meet in Whore’s tiny red box, an uncanny game of power, money and seduction slowly unfurls as the tiny red box becomes a trap. A witty, nimble and linguistically audacious dark comedy beamed in from the untrodden far territories beyond the Twilight Zone.
Directed by Alan McKendrick
Cast includes Adura Onashile, Stephen Clyde and Natali McCleary
