This past weekend we opened David Lindsay-Abaire's Pulitzer Prize-winning play at the beautiful La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts after just 16 rehearsals. It was an enormous amount of work, and I loved it. For those not familiar with the play or subsequent screen adaptation which starred Nicole Kidman, here's the description from the press release:
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.
For a play whose inciting incident is the death of a small child, Rabbit Hole employs a heap of humor and a refreshing lack of sentimentality. Director Michael Matthews has infused the unit-set, naturalistic world of the play with extremely effective and innovative touches of whimsy and theatricality that I don't think productions of this play often receive. I'm so proud to be a part of this terrific cast, and I'm enjoying the work immensely!
RABBIT HOLE runs through November 17. You can find out more and buy tickets here.
