Winner of the 2007 Pulitzer Prize. Becca and Howie Corbett have a picture perfect family life in the suburbs of New York until a random, tragic accident takes the life of their four-year old son. Soon after, Becca’s younger, irresponsible sister, Izzy, announces that she is pregnant. There will now be a new child in the family. As Becca and Howie grow apart, Becca’s mother, Nat, badgers Becca about her grieving process, and Jason, the young driver who killed their son, continually shows up to ask forgiveness. The group is on a bumpy road to healing with no road map in sight. Rabbit Hole delves into the complexity of a family navigating deep grief, and learning what it means to live a fruitful life when things fall apart. "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." —Variety. "Grade: A! A transcendent and deeply affecting new play, which shifts perfectly from hilarity to grief." —Entertainment Weekly. "RABBIT HOLE presents a tragedy and its consequences with utter candor, and without sentimentality. The dialogue is most impressive for capturing the awkwardness and pain of thinking people faced with an unthinkable situation—and eventually, their capacity for survival, and even hope." —USA Today. "With RABBIT HOLE, David Lindsay-Abaire has crafted the most serious, simply told work of his career—a painstakingly beautiful, dramatically resourceful, exquisitely human new play." —BackStage. "The highest praise to playwright David Lindsay-Abaire! RABBIT HOLE is an entertaining and satisfying play—it might just be the year's best." —Show Business Weekly.
