Blink Blink Blink

A new dark comedy created by Kirsten Rasmussen

Music by Jeff Louch

A motivational speaker is touring her new book "Skin the Bunny: An Aggressive Approach to Claiming Back Your Life." across Canada giving two day workshops to teach her new breaking edge self help theories. In a parallel world, a regular Bunny has to face his fears and his bullies if he wants to live up to his father's legacy. In this dark comedy the worlds of motivational speaker and bunny collide head on, altering both of their lives forever.

Montreal's Improv Queen Kirsten Rasmussen plays both woman and bunny in this tragic and hilarious tale. There will be song, there will be dance… there will be bunny.
