Edward Tulane is an expensive toy rabbit made of china. He is loved by a little girl named Abilene, but Edward doesn't care. He has no interest in anyone other than himself. On an ocean voyage, Edward is accidentally thrown overboard and sinks to the bottom of the sea. So begins Edward's "miraculous journey." As years pass by, Edward meets many different people in many different situations: an older grieving couple who find comfort in Edward's presence, a hobo and his dog who introduce Edward to a whole community of homeless wanderers, a farmer in need of a scarecrow, a sad little boy and his very ill sister, and finally a doll mender and an old doll who teach Edward an invaluable lesson. Through this journey, Edward learns what it is to love, what it is to lose that love, and how to find the courage to love again. (Dramatic Publishing, 2018).

The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane is directed by Mira Hirsch, and will feature Scenic Design by Jon Nooner, Costume Design by Linda Patterson, and Sound Design by Dan Bauman. The cast includes Atlanta-based actors Justin Walker as Edward, Josh Brook as Bull/Lawrence, Caitlin Hargraves as Traveler/Lolly, Jimmica Collins as Nellie/Sarah Beth.

DESCRIPTION
Edward Tulane is a very dapper china rabbit-a birthday present for 10-year-old Abilene, who loves him almost as much as Edward loves himself. But when he gets lost at sea, Edward finds he has a lot to learn. Caught in a fisherman's net, he lands in a garbage dump, travels with a happy hobo and comforts a sick child, bouncing along from person to person through decades until he discovers the transformative power of love.
