Becca and Howie Corbett are a happily married couple whose perfect world
is forever changed when their young son, Danny, is killed by a car.
Becca, an executive-turned-stay-at-home mother, tries to redefine her
existence in a surreal landscape of well-meaning family and friends.
Painful, poignant, and often funny, Becca's experiences lead her to find
solace in a mysterious relationship with a troubled young comic-book
artist, Jason - the teenage driver of the car that killed Danny. Becca's
fixation with Jason pulls her away from memories of Danny, while Howie
immerses himself in the past, seeking refuge in outsiders who offer him
something Becca is unable to give. The Corbetts, both adrift, make
surprising and dangerous choices as they choose a path that will
determine their fate. Rabbit Hole by American playwright David Lindsay Abaire won the 2007 Pulitzer prize for drama.
NTC's production is Directed by Kathleen Warren
It is a play about a bereaved family but as the playwright himself says
the characters we meet are highly functional, unsentimental, spirited
and often funny as they try to work their way through their grief and
around each other. It is not a sentimental play but it is a play with a
lot of humanity
