A Rabbit for Kim Jong-Il

A Rabbit for Kim Jong-Il by Kit Brookman presented by the Griffin Theatre, Canberra.

“Rabbits don’t talk Mr Wertheim. They keep their stupid mouths shut or they get whacked on the head with a shovel… Learn to be a rabbit.”

Johann’s super-sized rabbits are his pride and joy. Much to his surprise, the Supreme Leader of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea has taken a special interest, and will stop at nothing to get his hands on them. When a bungled undercover rescue mission transports Johann to North Korea, he finds himself, and the bunnies he betrayed, in a bit of a stew.

Preposterously based on a true story, A Rabbit for Kim Jong-il is a cunning comic thriller spanning two continents. Crammed with secret agents, espionage, double-crossings and a giant rabbit named Felix, the play is also a pointed parable about betrayal and forgiveness, greed and regret.

A Rabbit for Kim Jong-il was lovingly raised by playwright Kit Brookman and will be set free on stage by Lee Lewis.
