Hull Truck Theatre

Tortoise and The Hare (@ Fruit Market)

Created by Luke Pearson and Tom Saunders

The Tortoise & The Hare absolutely love games. They play board games, sporty games, guessing games and they even invent games. They are the best of friends and they have lots of fun playing together…. But only if The Hare is winning!

The Hare is a terrible loser and after losing yet another game to The Tortoise, The Hare hatches a plan to play a game that The Tortoise has no chance of winning…

The Hare challenges The Tortoise to a race.
