The Bike Shed Theatre

A play concerning a farmer's radical attempt to restore his land to its supposed former glory. And the differing reactions of his children. Or


a new play by Kieran Lynn

The once beautiful land is blighted by non-native species, including the grey squirrel, the Chinese mitten crab, the Siberian chipmunk, the Topmouth Gudgeon and, even, the European rabbit. They are wreaking havoc. Fortunately Stamper, a local farmer, has a solution.

This darkly comic new play from extraordinary young writer Kieran Lynn mixes poignancy and satire to devastating effect. Winning a Peter Brook Empty Space award in 2011, this production transfers to London following its world premiere at the Bike Shed last year.

Contains swearing, violence and lots of taxidermy.

"The enterprising Bike Shed is keeping theatre alive in Exeter" Lyn Gardner, The Guardian

"Tremendous, amusing dark comedy" What's On Stage (on Bunnies at the Bike Shed in 2011)
