RABBIT HOLE deals with the anatomy of grief and how a family deals with the unexpected death of a young child.

Performances for RABBIT HOLE are from Saturday, January 26, 2019 to Sunday, February, 17 2019; Fridays and Saturdays at 8:00 pm and Sundays at 3:00 pm. All actors must be available for all performances.
Looking to cast:
Becca: late 30’s; the mother of the young child that dies; responsible, sensible; keeps her emotions on a tight rein
Izzy: late 20’s/early 30’s; Becca’s younger irresponsible but well-wishing sister
Howie: late 30’s; the father of the young child that dies; caring, angry, conflicted
Nat: 60’s; Becca and Izzy’s mother; tries to be the voice of reason; sometimes puts her foot in her mouth
Jason: the 17 year old boy who is responsible (accidentally) for the child’s death; he blames himself for what happened
The play requires five actors who are able to convey a multitude of nuanced emotions. Although the play is a drama, it has several lighthearted moments and approaches the subject matter – grief – truthfully and honestly.
