Bunny has a long association with the National Theatre, designing and devising shows in each of its theatre spaces and in the NT Studio. The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time began life at the NT and subsequently transferred to the West End, winning seven Olivier Awards including Best Design. It then opened on Broadway, winning her a Tony Award, and is currently on an international tour. She designed People Places and Things at the NT, which transferred to the Wyndham’s Theatre and will open shortly in NY. Other recent work there includes The Red Barn directed by Robert Icke.

Many of her productions have been filmed for NT Live or by the BBC and she was Production Designer on Swansong starring John Gielgud, which was nominated for an Oscar as Best Short Film.

She has won three Olivier Awards, an Evening Standard Award and a Critics’ Circle Award for various shows at the NT.

She designed the all-women Shakespeare Trilogy at the Donmar Warehouse directed by Phyllida Lloyd. Julius Caesar and Henry IV transferred to NY and the productions were hailed as ‘One of the most important theatrical events of the year.’ The Tempest completed the Trilogy and all three were performed at the Donmar at King’s Cross in a new theatre space and bar which she designed. A film of the production of Julius Caesar premiered at the Edinburgh Film Festival.
