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.

    This is the BEST MeetUp group to which I've had the pleasure to belong! Thanks to our gracious host Mark, who selects the fab plays, shares an abundance of knowledge on background and playwrights, and spoils us with treats. We are lucky to be in this welcoming group. And the reading talent is terrific. Last night belonged to Mark, Trevor, and Sam - don't you think so, Ruth? Even though we gals were pretty good...and Maggie as observer/narrator.
    Loved it! Look forward to a classic next month-Medea. Wow! Super versatility! Happy camper here:))
