After a young boy is hit by a car and killed while chasing his dog into the street, his parents are left to pick up the pieces (or sweep them under the rug) in David Lindsay-Abaire's Rabbit Hole. Becca copes with her intense grief by distancing herself from any memory of her son, including his belongings, the family dog, her husband, and their home. Meanwhile Becca's husband, Howie, puts on a too-brave face and wants to have another kid. It's an intimate look at grief, and its limited run at Space 55 ensures a take on the Pulitzer Prize-winning play that's more intimate still.
Performed and presented by a cast of Meisner-trained actors, the raw three-day run of Rabbit Hole begins Thursday, November 21, in the small performing arts space at 636 East Pierce Street. Curtain is 7 p.m. The production closes Sunday, November 23. Tickets are $12 via www.space55.org and $14 at the door. Call 602-663-4032.
