THE COTERIE THEATRE
Edward Tulane is a three-foot tall toy rabbit, beautifully made, with a wardrobe of exquisite clothes. Though he’s made of china and can’t move, he can certainly think. And despite being much loved, he doesn’t love anyone but himself. On a cruise ship, Edward is thrown overboard by mean boys, thus beginning an odyssey that carries him through many years to different owners. After bouts of damage and humiliation, Edward the china rabbit finds he can now open his heart to others. 816.474.6552 or TheCoterie.org.
