The Rabbit Hole is the heartbreaking story of Becca and Howie, a couple trying to recover from the accidental death of their four-year-old son, Danny, eight months earlier. Danny was killed when he chased the family dog into the street and was hit by a car; Becca was answering the phone and had turned away from him briefly. Becca’s mother, Nat, and her younger sister, Izzy, try in their own ways to comfort the family. When Izzy, always the family troublemaker, announces that she is pregnant, Becca and Howie must come to terms with the new life in the family while dealing with their grief. In the final act, Jason, the young man who accidentally killed their son, comes to their home. He has written a story about alternate realities in which those who die live on elsewhere. His visit helps Becca to realize the family must move on. Deeply humane, occasionally funny and always heartrending, The Rabbit Hole explores the ways we deal with grief, both individually and as families.
"Rabbit Hole" was the recipient of the 2007 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
