White Rabbit Theatre
In 2020, we are heading down the rabbit hole with some darker pieces. This season kicks off with three short mystery plays by the great Agatha Christie, followed by a turn into the sinister world of Harold Pinter, before rounding out the year with a brand new dark comedy by playwright Michelle Kholos Brooks.

Michelle Kholos Brooks
Hitler's Tasters is a dark comedy based on the true story of the young women who were conscripted during WWII to taste all Hitler's food for poison. Against a backdrop of war, they talk about boys, fashion and celebrity, whilst waiting to die.
The Rule of Three
The Rule of Three is a collection of three short mystery thrillers. The first, Afternoon by the Seaside is a light-hearted mystery about a missing necklace. The second, The Rats, is a dark thriller about a couple, lured to a house and then trapped like rats. And the third, The Patient, is about a woman who survived a fall from a balcony (or was she pushed?). She cannot speak, but only she knows what really happened.
One for the Road;
Ashes to Ashes
The confusing and sinister relationship between Devlin and Rebecca becomes more deep, intense and dangerous as he pushes her forward and she can’t quite hold on (Ashes to Ashes).
Nicolas plays with his prisoners like a cat playing with a mouse. Do they hold information he needs, or is he just doing this for fun? (One for the Road).
White Rabbit will take these two Pinter pieces on tour to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland, August 2020.
