Overview


“David Lindsay-Abaire has crafted a drama that’s not just a departure but a revelation—an intensely emotional examination of grief, laced with wit, insightfulness, compassion and searing honesty.” –David Rooney, Variety

“A beautifully observed new play blessed with David Lindsay-Abaire’s customary grace and wit.” –Ben Brantley, New York Times

“With Rabbit Hole, David Lindsay-Abaire has crafted the most serious, simply told work of his career—a painstakingly beautiful, dramatically resourceful, exquisitely human new play.” –Backstage

A story of loss, heartbreak and forgiveness—told through daily moments and emotional hurdles—as a family moves on after the accidental death of their 4-year-old. After a critically acclaimed Broadway premier and successful film adaptation (starring Nicole Kidman, Aaron Eckhart, and Diane West), Rabbit Hole has been hailed as an artistic breakthrough for the highly regarded Lindsay-Abaire. A drama of what comes after tragedy, it captures “the awkwardness and pain of thinking people faced with an unthinkable situation—and eventually, their capacity for survival.” -USA Today

I am involved in Community Theatre and bought this play as a friend of mine will be directing it for our theatre company. Once I picked it up, I couldn't put it down. It's a beautiful, touching, sad and funny story about a family coping with the unthinkable, the death of a child. The play is extremely well written. You can relate to the characters and the dialogue. You can picture your family having a similar conversation to those the characters have in their kitchen at a birthday party. The play shows you that everyone has to grieve in their own way and then you have to be able to move on to survive. We all have tragedy in our lives and I think we can all empathize with the thoughts and feeling of Abaire's wonderful characters. This play is very touching, thoughtful and hopeful.

I have seen a production of this play and am considering it for production next year at my campus. The playwright is usually brilliant (Wonder of the World, Good People), but this play is exceptional.

It is no wonder the Pulitzer committee awarded this play. Among the cast of five we meet achingly real people, each hurting in his own painful and solitary way, unsure how to connect and heal. Just when the drama becomes almost too intense, Lindsey-Abaire offers us a bit of comic relief. I bought it to read prior to an audition and fell in love. Oh - I got the part!
