When Hugh finds his neighbour's rabbit lying dead in his garden, the only sensible thing to do is to put it in a box. But it doesn't fit.

As he puzzles over the body he starts to wonder how much of life disappears once we die.

Part of the Norfolk and Norwich Festival, theatre company Hoipolloi brings together performance artist Hugh Hughes and his best friend Aled's music as Story of a Rabbit lifts the lid on life's final mystery.

Winner of a Fringe First award at the Edinburgh Fringe 2007, this is a comic and curiously uplifting show celebrating the complexities of death.
