About the Play:

Rabbit Hole has become a favourite of acting teachers for Male Monologues.

Rabbit Hole is a full-length drama by David Lindsay-Abaire. This Pulitzer Prize-winning play explores the grieving process of a suburban couple whose four-year-old only child was hit by a car and killed eight months earlier. Rabbit Hole is a beautifully written, surprisingly funny, intensely human play about excruciating loss and the gradual possibility of dawning recovery.

Rabbit Hole is an insightful examination of the tragedy, grief, and consequences of the accidental death of a young boy. The story of a young couple's, heartbreak and forgiveness and how it affects those around them – told with wit and honesty through daily moments and emotional hurdles – as a family moves on after the accidental death of their 4-year-old son. 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.

Rabbit Hole premiered in 2006 on Broadway under the auspices of Manhattan Theatre Club (MTC) and received the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, five Tony nominations, and the Spirit of America Award. It's Canadian premiere was in an Alberta Theatre Projects production at Martha Cohen Theatre in 2007. The play has become a favourite scene study vehicle in acting classes and workshops and has become a popular choice for school and community theatre productions.
