On Tour and Presented at Geordie Theatre Fest

The Velveteen Rabbit by Jimmy Blais is a play that captures the journey of Riley, who, after moving to a new home, receives a plush rabbit offering comfort and sparking imaginative adventures. The following year, Riley gets an AI assistant, Lexa, leading them into exciting digital escapades. This introduces a conflict between the comforting, imaginative world with the Velveteen Rabbit and the thrilling digital adventures with Lexa, highlighting the themes of emotional connections and the balance between reality and technology.
