David Lindsay-Abaire’s Pulitzer Prize winning drama, Rabbit Hole, is to have its UK premiere at London’s Hampstead Theatre a decade after it took Broadway by storm.
Directed by Edward Hall, Rabbit Hole, is a searing and a witty tale of a family wrestling with terrible loss. Following its success in New York the story was adapted for film, with Nicole Kidman and Aaron Eckhart among the cast.
Becca and Howie Corbett are a happy suburban family with everything they could want until a shocking and sudden event turns their world upside down and leaves them drifting perilously apart.
Riding the turbulence of domestic life, Becca and Howie must find a way back to each other while their unpredictable family tries to bridge the ‘infinite space between’, which life changing events create.
The stunning drama, filled with distinctive wit and grace, charts the journey of grief and its antidotes – love and hope.
The playwright returns to Hampstead following the success of his sell out blue-collar comedy, Good People, starring Imelda Staunton, which transferred to the West End.
His further theatre credits include multiple award winning Good People, Shrek the Musical, which was nominated for eight Tony Awards, four Olivier Awards and a Grammy; Fuddy Meers; Kimberly Akimbo; Wonder of the World; and A Devil Inside.
Rabbit Hole runs at Hampstead Theatre from January 29 January-March 5. Public Booking opens November 27.
