Overview

“An intensely emotional examination of grief, laced with wit, insightfulness, compassion and searing honesty . . . an uncommonly affecting and absorbing play.”—Variety

“The sad, sweet release of Rabbit Hole lies precisely in the access it allows to the pain of others. . . . This anatomy of grief [taps] a reservoir of feelings common to anyone who has experienced the vacuum left by a death in the family.”—The New York Times

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 four-year-old. With a critically acclaimed Broadway premiere, featuring Cynthia Nixon and Tyne Daly, Rabbit Hole has been hailed as an artistic breakthrough for the highly regarded David 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).

Editorial Reviews

Variety
David Lindsay-Abaire has crafted a drama that's not just a departure but a revelation—an in-tensely emotional examination of grief, laced with wit, insightfulness, compassion and searing honesty.
Entertainment Weekly
Grade: A! A transcendent and deeply affecting new play, which shifts perfectly from hilarity to grief.
USA Today
RABBIT HOLE presents a tragedy and its consequences with utter candor, and without sentimentality. The dialogue is most impressive for capturing the awkwardness and pain of thinking people faced with an unthinkable situation—and eventually, their capacity for survival, and even hope.
BackStage
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.
Bergen Record
A thoroughly absorbing, profoundly affecting and painfully touching examination of grief.
Show Business Weekly
The highest praise to playwright David Lindsay-Abaire! RABBIT HOLE is an entertaining and satisfying play—it might just be the year's best.
Star-Ledger
A perceptive and poignant study in the day-to-day aches of bereavement: problems with personal intimacy, the uneasy friends who don't call, the emptiness in a house packed with reminders...Heartbreaking in its theme and details, RABBIT HOLE is a beautifully crafted work of great sensitivity.

    Beautiful, poignant story - hats off to David Lindsay-Abaire

    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.

    Brilliant Play

    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.

    Finally read the whole thing.

    This is an excellent play. I am finally reading it after hearing about it and seeing scenes from it. Very touching and moving.

    Beautiful and Moving

    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!
