Rabbit is David Mynne. Born, in 1949, with a big smile. I looked like Charlie Drake (Google him!).
I was about 4 years old and my dad made me a car. Yes, he really did make it!
I went to school, grew older and nothing much happened.
Then the 70s arrived and suddenly I was hairy. I worked for Tesco as a signwriter… hair and all.
Kneehigh started out and I was there from the beginning. I have worked with the company, as a performer, maker
and graphic designer, on and off for the last 30 odd years.
There I am playing an old man waving a gun around. There is no more hair. Now I have a bus pass.
In 2012 I decided to create a solo show and so Rabbit was born.
Working with director Simon Harvey I developed a style of story telling that is exciting, accessible and easy to tour.

come up with a piece of theatre which is as ingenious as it is intimateFrank Ruhrmund: The Cornishman
