Hare Brain – School Season

Hare Brain tackles the age-old dilemma – does fast and furious or slow and steady win the race?

In a fantasy world of toy invention, replete with a gurgling think tank that sparks vacuum cleaners, mops and brushes into a life of their own, Hare Brain tells the tale of Harry and Toulouse who are in a slapstick race against time to find the perfect story that will fit the perfect toy. Who will it be that tells the final tale? Harry, the stressed-out marketing guru or Toulouse, the considered, gentle storyteller?

Hare Brain will challenge young minds and tickle their funny bones while inviting them to consider: is fast and frenetic the secret to success, or can ‘tortoise’ thinking lead to a better outcome. Obsession and addiction to technology are pitted against imagination and creativity in this engaging comedic production.
