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

Review:

A startling, heartfelt and potent new play. Rabbit Hole is a remarkable, affecting redirection of Lindsay-Abaire’s considerable talent.” Michael Kuchwara, Associated Press

Rabbit Hole is a sensitive drama with the well-observed poignancy of a memorable short story, captured with the blinkered belief of Lindsay-Abaire’s grief-stricken heart.” Charles McNulty, Los Angeles Times

Grade: A! A transcendent and deeply affecting new play, which shifts perfectly from hilarity to grief.” Whitney Pastorek, Entertainment Weekly

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.” Elyssa Gardner, USA Today

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.” Michael Sommers, Star-Ledger

Gut-wrenching Rabbit Hole’s script absolutely deserved its Pulitzer win: the characters’ words sound ripped from real life while maintaining layers of nuance. Chicago Theater Beat

...a story that’s remarkably perceptive, astute and unfailingly, if brutally, honest.” OC Register
