The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane
4041 N. Milwaukee Avenue Chicago
The story of Edward Tulane is "happy, then sad, then
all mixed up." Edward Tulane is an expensive toy rabbit made of china. He is loved by a little girl
named Abilene, but Edward 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 his
journey-a journey over which he has no control, for he is a toy rabbit. He can neither move nor
speak. As years pass by, Edward meets many different people in many different situations.
Through this miraculous journey, Edward learns what it is to love, what it is to lose that love, and
how to find the courage to love again.

Chicago Theatre Review - Highly Recommended
"...Kathryn Walshís extraordinary production of Kate DiCamilloís is equally funny and heartbreaking. Itís a perfect story for Easter as well as for the first weeks of Spring. This talented director guides her skilled actors in creating a cast of characters that sparkle with candor and imagination. If youngsters attending this play havenít already read the book upon which itís based, this production will absolutely inspire them to do so. Filament Theatre Company has brought so many wonderful literary adaptations to life for Chicago audiences, but it can add this classic to the roster of their very best. It may be that this is Filament Theatreís greatest achievement ever for family audiences, and it will certainly be remembered for a long time to come."
