Rabbit Hole

For more than two millennia, theatre artists have wrestled with how we cope with the unexpected and sometimes tragic events that impact our lives. Like the canonical playwrights who precede him, David Lindsay-Abaire, author of Rabbit Hole, depicts characters who survive life’s challenges through a mix of resilience, humor, and compassion. Ultimately, as Rabbit Hole so beautifully demonstrates, compassion for ourselves and for each other makes us stronger as individuals and wiser as a community.
Rabbit Hole, which won the 2007 Pulitzer Prize, is a "transcendent and deeply affecting new play" that "shifts perfectly from hilarity to grief" (Entertainment Weekly). It's a story of loss, heartbreak, and forgiveness as a family attempts to move on after a life-shattering accident. David Rooney (Variety) writes, "David Lindsay-Abaire has crafted a drama that's not just a departure but a revelation - an intensely emotional examination of grief, laced with wit, insightfulness, compassion, and searing honesty." Howard Shapiro (Philadelphia Inquirer) describes the play as "a satisfyingly strange mix: a wrenching look into grief and healing, leavened with generous spoonfuls of humor. This is one smart play."
