'Profoundly moving and exquisitely crafted... the very best of dance and theatre.' Total Theatre Review on It Needs Horses

One night in a city a man and a woman meet and have sex and fall deeply in love.

Each night the lovers slip away from their real lives into a world that exists only in their shared imagination. A world that belongs to them; a world in which they are not their normal selves, but King of the Rabbits and Queen of the Hares. But what begins as a game soon becomes a battleground, and the couple hurtle towards a tragedy of the saddest, most ordinary kind.

Inspired by Virginia Woolf's short story Lappin and Lapinova, dance theatre company Lost Dog have collaborated with award-winning writer Lucy Kirkwood to create this intimate and quietly devastating new work for two performers.

Co-programmed in partnership with South East Dance
