The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane *
Adapted by Dwayne Hartford based on the novel by Kate DiCamillo

Winner of the 2018 AATE Distinguished Play Award. Edward Tulane is a rabbit made of china given to a ten-year-old girl named Abilene. An unfortunate incident finds him falling overboard. Edward spends 297 days on the ocean floor until a passing fisherman pulls him into his fishing net. Edward’s journeys take him far from home, but even farther from the selfish rabbit he once was.

*Produced by special arrangement with THE DRAMATIC PUBLISHING COMPANY, INC., of Woodstock, Illinois.
