Rabbit Hole

A Senior Project in Theater Studies for Maia Collier

by David Lindsay-Abaire

Poster of Rabbit Hole

The Rabbit Hole centers around a family dealing with their grief after the sudden death of their four year old son in an unexpected car accident.”Every action, big and small, and every word that follows are informed by our awareness of the characters’ awareness of Danny’s death. Grief has obviously not brought the members of Becca’s family — including her husband, Howie, and her mother, Nat— closer together. Sorrow isolates them. Anything that anyone says is almost guaranteed to be the wrong thing.Jokes and cute anecdotes only wound; kindly advice is received as if it were a slap in the face. Family conversations are shaped by a spastic pattern of recrimination and apology, of irritation and misdirected comfort. This rueful awkwardness is only enhanced by the unexpected appearance of the high school student, Jason, who was driving the car that killed Danny.”
