Rabbit Hole by David Lindsay-Abaire is an intensely emotional examination of grief, laced with wit, insightfulness, compassion and searing honesty.
Christie Koppe directs the 2007 Pulitzer Prize-winning drama at Chippen Theatre. The play tells the heart-breaking story of Becca and Howie Corbett, a family who has everything they could want, until a life-shattering accident turns their world upside down and leaves the couple drifting perilously apart.
Rabbit Hole charts their bittersweet search for comfort in the darkest of places and for a path that will lead them back into the light of day.
“With Rabbit Hole, David Lindsay-Abaire has crafted the most serious, simply told work of his career — a painstakingly beautiful, dramatically resourceful, exquisitely human play.” BackStage
The cast includes: Imogen Morgan as Becca Corbett; Peter-William Jamieson as Howie Corbett; Rachel Giddens as Izzy (Becca’s younger sister); Alison Chambers as Nat (Becca and Izzy’s mother); Sam Wallace as Jason (a local teenager).
Director Christie Koppe notes: “This is a deeply personal play for anyone who has lost a family member. It speaks truth about the endeavour to continue life after the initial grieving process has passed. While this play provides no resolution to the action, it is in this that its beauty lies. This is real life on stage and the audience is invited to share in the emotion that underlies regular everyday events that parents stomach after the loss of their child.”
Rabbit Hole is a tightly focused five-character drama punctuated with sharp, surprising flashes of aching humour.
