Rabbit Hole

About the Play

Becca and Howie Corbett have everything a family could want, until a life-shattering accident turns their world upside down and leaves the couple drifting perilously apart. RABBIT HOLE charts their bittersweet search for comfort in the darkest of places and for a path that will lead them back into the light of day.

DIRECTOR’S NOTES
David Lindsay-Abaire has said that he created Rabbit Hole in response to a challenge to write about something that scared him. I chose to direct the play for the same reason. Anyone who has experienced a significant loss can identify with the pain, frustration, anger and even the ironic humour in this play. We bump into one another, hurt one another, yet we all want the same thing: to be in a place where we can at least pretend to be happy. Dedicated to Fiora.– Peter Zednik
