Hello, Mother. Hello, Rabbit.
All of us at EMP are gearing up for our next live show: the regional premiere of C. Denby Swanson’s A Brief Narrative of an Extraordinary Birth of Rabbits. Which basically means we’re constantly having nightmares about being devoured by Rabbits and are all on the fast track for developing debilitating mommy complexes.
So since EMP LOVES YOU, we figured we’d share our neurosis with this month’s ODD SUNDAYS theme: HELLO, MOTHER. HELLO, RABBIT.
