PRODUCTION DESCRIPTION

The time....is out of joint". Life has seemingly stood still in Becca and Howie's seemingly perfect suburban home. The chores go on with mechanical precision: going to work, folding the laundry; even to perfection: the creation of a creme caramel dessert not complete without it's glazed bottom, which becomes its top. But this is the home from which, eight months before, Becca and Howie's four-year-old Danny was taken suddenly, hit by a car as he chased a ball into the street. It is the home to which Becca's notably imperfect sister Izzy has come to announce that she is pregnant, and to which Becca and Izzy's mother, Nat, arrives to offer, help, advice, and memories. David Lindsay-Abaire's play explores the many paths that people may take following the death of a loved one in order to reach a point of healing. Beyond that, through the character of Jason, the teenage neighbor who drove the car that hit Danny, and his need to connect with Danny's family, we explore the profound and diverse nature of life, the need to seek forgiveness and the need to forgive. This life-affirming character study will touch all, with sympathy, with empathy, and even, yes, with laughter, as each of the persons involved goes to their point of epiphany.

Some great cast but not enough...

I expect a lot at the Pumphouse and usually get it.

Rabbit Hole is just a weak written play that kind of plods along at a snail pace.
But this does not mean bad performances. The stand out here are
Stacy Vaccaro and Kara Duke.
Both are actresses that rate much higher than your run of the mill
community theatre offerings (especially Vaccaro).

Five stars on their performance while only 3 stars for the play itself. [POST A COMMENT REGARDING THIS REVIEW]
