Rabbit hole

An emotionally powerful family drama tells a story about a marriage that is undergoing a fundamental life test. Becca and Howie are growing apart. They were affected by one of the greatest family tragedies imaginable.

Can they deal with the blow of fate and return to normal life? Can Becca, her pregnant sister and their quirky mother hold the family together? The author himself claims that his play is ‘surprisingly amusing, but also a little sad and serious, but ultimately hopeful’.   

Prominent American playwright and screenwriter David Lindsay-Abaire (*1969) received the prestigious Pulitzer Prize in 2007 for his play Rabbit Hole. His story was then made into a feature film in 2010 with Nicole Kidman (Oscar nomination) and Aaron Eckhart in the lead roles.
