Rabbit Hole

by David Lindsay-Abaire

directed by Gaye Poole

November 6th - November 10th 2012
 

Rabbit Hole is a vivid, hopeful, honest and unexpectedly witty portrait of a family searching for what remains possible in the most impossible of all situations.
Becca and Howie exist in the wake of a shocking, sudden loss. Becca finds pain in the familiar while Howie finds comfort. The shifts come in abrupt, unforeseen moments. As off track as they are, they find their way to a life that still holds the potential for beauty, laughter and happiness.

An intimate glimpse into two people learning to re-engage with each other and a world that has been tilted off its axis.

Rabbit Hole is as poignant as a love letter.

 
“GRADE: A!  A transcendent and deeply affecting new play, which shifts perfectly from hilarity to grief.”
 - Entertainment Weekly
 
“You feel vaguely guilty for laughing, even as your laughter relieves you...This is one smart play."
- Philadelphia Inquirer

ABOUT US

The metaphor of Carving in Ice evokes the transience of theatre. Ice sculptures are crafted by artisans whose sculptures last only for a short while, then melt and disappear. Theatre too is ephemeral in its nature; once the season is completed, the existence of the play, the shapes, sounds, movement in space, the light on actors’ skin disappear from view – but as with ice sculptures the traces of the experience continue to live on in the minds of those who were present.
