Its plot, in summary, sounds like the synopsis of a Lifetime TV movie. Its accolades, which include a 2007 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, give it a sheen of importance. But whats significant about David Lindsay-Abaires Rabbit Hole is not its honors or its ability to rise above what sounds like a formulaic story. It is Lindsay-Abaires affecting use of humor in the face of tragedy that makes this a rare piece of theater. Its story, about the accidental death of a small child and its impact on a married couple, bristles with brittle comedy and with the kind of thoughtful dialogue one wishes real people used during dark times like these.
