Like Rabbits

Like Rabbits inspired by Virginia Woolf’s short story Lappin and Lapinova

On a night in a city a man and a woman meet and have sex and fall deeply in love.

Each night the lovers slip away from their real lives and disappear into a world that exists only in their shared imagination. A world that belongs to them, in which tax returns and shopping lists and commuting do not exist. A world in which they are not their normal selves, but King of the Rabbits and Queen of the Hares.

But what begins as a game soon becomes a battleground, and the couple hurtle towards a tragedy of the quietest, saddest and most ordinary type.
