Beatrix Potter Must Die!

A desperate American farmer travels back in time for an unusual solution to his plague of rabbits. A hilarious two-hander that offers an possible origin story for "The Tale of Peter Rabbit."

(Inspired by the playwright's struggles with rabbits on his own farm. But no actual time travel was involved.)

    This is a delightful romp through the past. I love how Gabridge intertwines Beatrix Potter with American farmer Sam McGregor and how this meeting even makes sense (in a far-off galaxy). It's clever, witty, packed with action and has a great turnabout at the end. A grand addition to a play festival.
