Marcovaldo & The Rabbit is an adaptation of one of Italo Calvino’s short stores.

Devised as part of the Complicité Do A-Level Drama project. During this process, a group of devisers/performers of various career-stages undertook the devising unit of A-Level drama condensed into 2 weeks. After roughly 20 hours of devising, the performances toured to schools across London & Hertfordshire. The performances were also successfully created following the Theatre Green Book (Advanced level).
