The true, twisted story of Mary Toft, and those who instigated, verified, promoted — and ultimately vilified — her plot to better herself weaves together the lives of many people: from the poorest in 18th-century England to King George I. Her dramatic delivery of praeternatural rabbits continues to puzzle and inspire, and today, her legend lives on.

“HOW TO GIVE BIRTH TO A RABBIT” is a theatrical piece premiering at the Capital Fringe Festival in July 2016. The story — and the themes of poverty, pride, pomp, and fraud — are revealed through character monologues — each expressing their desires, actions, and the results of their involvement.
