BWT's "Rabbit Hole"
Breakthrough Workshop Theatre presents
RABBIT HOLEWritten by David Lindsay-AbaireDirected by Cecilia J. Pang
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. Described by Variety as "a drama that's not just a departure but a revelation—an intensely emotional examination of grief, laced with wit, insightfulness, compassion and searing honesty," it was also hailed by USA Today for it's ability to explore "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."
Winner of the 2007 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, it fits perfectly into BWT's Season 8 theme of “Grief / Empathy / Hope." This "Special Event Breakthrough Workshop" will be directed by Cecilia J. Pang in her BWT debut, and will feature a cast of BWT All-Stars led by Margot Nelson and Nathan Bauer-Spector (who previously played opposite each other as both Catherine and Hal in BWT's "Proof" in 2015 and Harper and Joe in BWT's "Angels in America" in 2017), as well as Breakthrough Icon Heidi Maretz and the 2018 Breakthrough Artist of the Year, Stephanie Hester.
This workshop is being presented free of charge for one performance only at the beautiful La Jolla Riford Library.
