Camellia and the Rabbit
Spirit Level at Royal Festival Hall
Rachel Snider performed her one woman show, suitable for all tea lovers:
It is the elixir of the Gods.
It has stirred wars, created vast fortunes and advanced medical science.
It is at its prime in the afternoon.
It has infused women’s liberation.
And it can always be relied upon in a crisis.
It is Camellia sinensis – or tea – and it has rescued a rabbit, charmed a magician and saved Rachel’s life.
A true story seen through the gauze of an Assam tea bag, that most reliable of teas.
Dramaturgy by Polona Baloh Brown.
