"Rabbit Hole"


by David Lindsay-Abaire

 

Dir: Garry Thomas

Saturday 22 February, by appointment (On stage April 2014)

 

Rabbit Hole is the heart breaking story of Becca and Howie, a couple trying to recover from the accidental death of their four-year-old son, Danny. Becca's mother, Nat, and her younger sister, Izzy, try in their own ways to comfort the family.

 

When Izzy, always the family troublemaker, announces that she is pregnant, Becca and Howie must come to terms with the new life in the family while dealing with their grief. In the final act, Jason, the young man who accidentally killed their son, comes to their home. He has written a story about alternate realities in which those who die live on elsewhere. His visit helps Becca to realize the family must move on.

Rabbit Hole

Deeply humane, occasionally funny and always heartrending, Rabbit Hole explores the ways we deal with grief, both individually and as families.
