Description

Lifeline Theatre presents a world premiere adaptation of Richard Adams’ Watership Down, by Lifeline Theatre ensemble member John Hildreth (two-time Non-Equity Jeff Award-winner for New Adaptation), and directed by Lifeline Theatre ensemble member Katie McLean Hainsworth.

When their birthplace is destroyed, brothers Hazel and Fiver lead a misfit band of survivors on a quest for a new home. Confronted with insurmountable dangers on all sides, the refugees must join forces with unexpected allies and conquer their deepest fears in order to endure.

Join a pair of unlikely leaders in the adventure of a lifetime, in this unforgettable story of survival against impossible odds. A stirring adventure, re-imagined for the Lifeline stage with puppetry, movement, and animalistic stage combat, by the award-winning adaptor and director of Johnny Tremain.
