Childsplay, Tempe’s award-winning professional theatre for children and families, presents the world premiere of The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane at the Tempe Center for the Arts. The play is about Edward Tulane, a vain, self-centered china rabbit who is adored by his owner Abilene, but doesn’t return her love. Edward enjoys a very happy life until one day, while vacationing on the RMS Queen Mary, he falls overboard and floats to the ocean floor where he lives for months. When a storm brings him to the surface, Edward is found by a fisherman and begins a fantastic journey with many owners who have a profound effect on his life. Ultimately the play is about finding friendship, finding yourself, and eventually finding your way home.
The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane takes place on weekends at the Tempe Center for the Arts through November 10. It is recommended for children ages seven and older. For more information and to purchase tickets, visit http://www.tempe.gov/index.aspx?page=2302.
