Rabbit Hole

By David Lindsay-Abaire

Paperback £12.99£10.39

  • Pulitzer Prize for Drama - 2007

Becca and Howie Corbett are a happy suburban couple whose lives are changed forever when their young son Danny is killed in an accident.

Eight months on, they are drifting perilously apart. Becca wants to start afresh in a new home and give away their son's possessions, but Howie wants to keep the memory of Danny alive. Can they ever find their way back to each other?

David Lindsay-Abaire's Pulitzer Prize-winning drama, filled with distinctive wit and grace, charts the path from grief to its antidotes – love and hope.

Rabbit Hole premiered on Broadway at the Biltmore Theatre in a Manhattan Theatre Club production in January 2006. The play was originally commissioned by South Coast Repertory, Costa Mesa, California, and first presented at its Pacific Playwrights Festival reading series in 2005. It won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 2007.

Rabbit Hole was made into a film starring Nicole Kidman in 2010, and the play had its UK premiere at Hampstead Theatre, London, in January 2016.

‘If space is infinite, then there are tons of you’s out there, and tons of me’s.’
