The famous fable where a hare, so sure he's the fastest animal in the wood, challenges a tortoise to a race. The tortoise wins on account of the hare stopping for a nap - thus proving that slow and sure beats fast and unreliable. It's the race of the decade! Slow, steady tortoise versus speedy, greedy hare. They're fit, they're keen, they're completely miss-matched! Surely it's all over before it's begun? Following their sell out performances of The Enormous Turnip, The Elves and The Shoemaker, Little Red Hen and The 3 Little Pigs last Christmas, the hare-brained Stuff & Nonsense Theatre Company return with an up-to-date, Olympic-sized re-write of this world famous fable.
