RABBIT HOLE

Genre: Drama
Written by David Lindsay-Abaire, Directed by John T. Liszewski

The story, about loss, heartbreak, and forgiveness, focuses on the aftermath of a family’s tragedy as they strive to move on with their lives. It is a sad, sweet, heartwarming tale that Variety described as “an intensely emotional examination of grief, laced with wit, insightfulness, compassion, and searing honesty.” Rather than dwell on the melodrama, the play is a life-affirming testimony to continuing bonds of family and the endurance of the human spirit. With realistic, light-hearted dialogue and all-too-believable characters, audiences will see why Lindsay-Abaire’s story about the capacity for survival won the Pulitzer Prize and many other awards.
