Join Tom and Bunny as they discover what it is to be British in a crisis.

After a run at Assembly at the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Tom and Bunny Save the World embarks on a UK Tour, starting on the 7th of March at Clapham Omnibus and finishing at Ilkley Playhouse on the 2nd of June. Fat Rascal Theatre’s zombie apocalypse places women in the roles usually taken by men: the soldier, the scientist and the sexual instigator. They place their female characters in the centre of the violence, whilst the men are allowed to be vulnerable, caring and maternal. This wacky, bizarre yet familiar setting allows them to explore and break the traditional gender roles we find within this genre and leaves room to question why they existed in the first place.

We desperately need more companies like Fat Rascal Theatre
★★★★★ West End Wilma (on Beauty and the Beast: A Musical Parody)

Fat Rascal Theatre is an award-winning theatre company, and currently part of the New Diorama Graduate Emerging Companies scheme. They are young, bold and cheeky, exploring taboo subjects with a cup of Yorkshire Tea in hand. They discuss social and political issues through an accessible and appealing format to engage a wider audience. They want to create incredibly entertaining, dynamic and gripping theatre which people are going to want to see for fun, and want them to leave having had a great time but also feeling ready to take on the world. They believe that theatre should always aim to inspire, educate or liberate and should be available to everybody.

Fat Rascal Theatre might be the saviour of British comedy musicals
