Oh yeah, I've heard about the play but I never looked into it. Plays aren't really my thing. Though I couldn't help but to laugh at the other clip with Hazel and Woundwort. Dressed in super serious military uniforms...while hopping around like bunnies. LOL

There was another play in 2006:

And another one in 2015:

I wish they were available on the Internet.

Watership Down Theater Adaptation

:dandelion I don't Know if our warren has addressed already or not, but I have recently discovered this summer that there is indeed A theater adaptation of Watership Down. I researched into this and found a cool theater where the play takes place in The Watermill Theather, in Newbury, Berkshire, United Kingdom:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=viWSTG1h4pM
I have seen some parts of the play on my research and it is a little or a lot different from the original, but what Adaptation isn't right. I do wish to personally see the play in the future and I love How much work and effort they put in the play.
Here is a good webpage from the theater that explains little more of what they do there.

Ooh, I'd be tempted to go and see that if they toured with it. :D

I 100% intended to go to this, I made plans and everything but some things happened and I ended up not going. I'm VERY disappointed I didn't get to go!!!!!! Hopefully it goes on show again next year or something.
